  • This will a very good place for people to know the history of wood craving. You can find amazing artworks. Each artwork display the feeling and tasty of life. You can art with peace and feeling the motion from creators.
  • The museum doesn't have lots of seating and some of the displays have text too small to read. But otherwise a great place to spend the afternoon admiring artwork and walking in the surrounding forest.
  • Works are displayed throughout the five floors of the museum. It takes about 40 minutes to walk around the whole museum. If you're passionate about wood sculpture, you might spend 2-4 hours enjoying the scent of wood and every unique work displayed. The special exhibitions on 3 and 4 floor and in the basement are changed every 6 weeks or depending on the schedule of the exhibition. Photography, however, is prohibited in the museum unless you're an approved reporter.
  • All kinds of wooden sculptures, from the standard Buddha variations and Chinese chess pieces to all kinds of more Western art. Photos are NOT allowed! There is not much parking space. Next to the museum is a street with shops selling wooden sculptures of all kinds. Nearby restaurants are Hakka style, catering to tourists.
  • It's a gorgeous place I have ever seen
