    Rukai Museum

The Rukai Museum was founded to collect and display traditional Rukai objects and to demonstrate different aspects of Rukai culture. Such objects include everyday goods, folk cultural items, and fine handicrafts. There is a corner in the museum that is used to display and illustrate the structure of Rukai stone housing. Foreign visitors are encouraged to explore Rukai culture here, as the museum offers a comprehensive English guide. In fact, the museum not only serves the general public, but also works with cultural and educational experts to strengthen Rukai identity and to pass down Rukai traditions.

It is local artist Du Zhai-fu who designed the museum’s exterior. Mr. Du and his father Mr. Du Ba-nan then carried out the following work. The whole building is built with modern construction methods, with traditional Rukai stone plates. The walls are decorated with Rukai dance themes to accentuate indigenous charm. You can find illustrations of Rukai women showing off their glass beads as they hold hands dancing reception dance. Young people also dance to welcome visitors. Even hundred-pace snakes curl up their bodies into circles to celebrate. The museum is a must-see if you ever visit Wutai.

On the second-floor platform is a sample of Rukai stone housing. Its traditional structure is presented, and so are household facilities. The open-style structure helps keep warm during the winter and stay cool in hot summer.

    The admission fee is only 20NT. It's a small but nice place. It's got some fun facts and history, well worth of your time. The rooftop's got a good view. The workers were nice, friendly, helpful and informative=)

    The entrance fee is 20 yuan, but it is very worthwhile. The aboriginal culture has gradually passed away and needs to be revived by those who love culture. This cultural relic museum records the life memory of Lukai. May the culture of Lukai live on and pass on from generation to generation. Everyone usually only goes to the Shenshan tribe to eat Aiyu donuts. It is recommended to visit this museum.

    Although the business hours are until 16:30, it is forbidden to enter at 16:00 during cleaning. I just went there at 16:00, and I didn't see it... I suggest changing the business hours, it should only be until 16:00!
