    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’s worth visiting to get to know Taoyuan’s local characteristics, cultural environment, and handicrafts.

    It was already past the business hours when I went there that day. Although I called to inform me during the business hours, I still felt very sorry 😓 and it was a pity because I could no longer visit the interior, so it was 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 really moved people 😂Because I drove a long way up the mountain road, I saw a large-scale restaurant The Aboriginal Cultural Center, the building is also very beautiful. There is a curved eaves in front of the building, which feels like being surrounded. I hope to have a chance to visit again next time, and I want to take a good look at it.

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.
