    Rukai Museum

The Lukai Cultural Center is on Zhongshan Alley in Wutai Village of Wutai Township. The center is a slate stone house built with modern techniques, surrounded by a traditional Lukai dance-themed fence. The three-story center aims to preserve Lukai culture and features traditional artifacts and relics from the Lukai Tribe, reflecting the diversity of the indigenous culture. The first floor is an event hall where exhibitions are held from time to time. The second floor is where Lukai relics are on display. Besides the cultural displays, there is also a sample slate stone house outside the exhibition hall. The sample house features complete but simple furniture inside, allowing tourists to deepen their understanding of the architecture and characteristics of slate stone houses, which are cozy to live in during both summer and winter.

Visitors are recommended to spend an hour at the center. Please note that it is closed on Mondays. Make sure that you apply for permits to enter Wutai Township. Larger vehicles such as trucks and tour buses are prohibited from entering the region.

    Small but solid museum of heritage. In addition to introducing the Rukai culture of the Wutai Tribe, it also presents how the locality preserves and promotes the achievements of traditional culture. The currently on display [Recalling the Road - Jilu Tribal Story Map Co-production Exhibition] shows the ancient place names of the tribe and the world view of the living environment collected from the dictation of the elders of the tribe, which is very interesting.

    Now there is an exhibition, 20 yuan per person, and there is only an exhibition hall on the first floor. On the left, there are some images, paintings, and topographic maps. The house, remembering the past in the old tribe, life details, although it is only 20 yuan, it is still worth a walk.

    It is worth going up the mountain to experience the customs of the Rukai tribe. There is a huge square directly opposite the museum, which is also a gathering place for tribal activities. There are occasionally stalls selling coffee around, and there are outdoor seats to sit on. When the weather is clear, the sky is blue. The field of vision is wide, and the mountains in the distance are clearly visible. The museum is currently holding a special exhibition of cultural relics returning to their parents’ homes, which has been jointly prepared and planned by the tribesmen and the Taiwan Museum for four years. From 2021/10/22 to 2022/04/23, tourists visiting during this period , don't miss it.
