    Taoyuan District Indigenous Museum

The Taoyuan Indigenous Museum is situated close to the 94km mark of the Southern Cross-Island Highway. The three-story museum building is surrounded by mountains and sits against a picturesque background. There is a plaza in front of the museum building, which can be used for large-scale outdoor performances or indigenous celebrations and ceremonies.

The museum helps to preserve various indigenous cultures in the area, which is home to Bunun and La Aluwa people, the two largest indigenous groups in the region, alongside other smaller tribes, such as the Paiwan, the Lukai, and even Han people. The museum boasts a wide collection consisting of audiovisual archives, as well as relics, which together record the development of the Bunun and La Aluwa people. Through its quality displays, the museum hopes to help the indigenous people better understand their tribal cultures and history.

Visitors are recommended to spend an hour in the museum complex to look at displays in different exhibition halls of various themes.

    It was beyond business hours that day. Although there was a call to inform us during business hours, I still feel very sorry😓 and it is a pity, because it is no longer possible to visit the interior, so it is rare to go there. On the last day of the stamping activity, the weather on the mountain was not good, which affected all the itineraries of the day, but after driving to this place, it will really make people feel moved 😂 Because of the long mountain road, I saw a large-scale restaurant The aboriginal cultural center is also very beautiful. In front of the building, there is a curved stand and the eaves have a feeling of being surrounded. I hope to have the opportunity to visit again next time, and I want to have a good visit.

    Taoyuan District Aboriginal Heritage Museum is located about 94 kilometers away from Nanheng Highway in Taoyuan District. It is surrounded by mountains and has beautiful scenery. For the Paiwan, Rukai and Han people, there is a large outdoor exhibition hall in front of the building, which can be used as a place for holding various festivals. The museum mainly preserves the local aboriginal culture, enriches the collection of cultural relics, and uses images, utensils and other collections to show the history of humanistic development of the Bunun and La Aruwa people in this area, so as to present their high-quality culture. Understand the historical context of the ethnic group and the trajectory of cultural changes. (Source: Provided by Taoyuan District Aboriginal Cultural Center)

    Walk around the cultural center and watch the artistic creations on totems and murals, so that people can understand the tribal culture of the aborigines.
