    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.
