    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.

    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=)

    It is one of the must-visit spots for friends who want to learn more about aboriginal culture. There are not only cultural relics on display, but also detailed text introductions. The service staff will also answer questions carefully, which is great.

    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.
