  • Down a lot of white stairs to get out from the second floor of the Palace Museum, located on the right side out on the road and walked about 100 meters on the left. There are exhibits about the Aboriginal way of life and rituals, costumes especially fourth floor exhibit is like. Charm is seen slowly compared to the National Palace Museum was crowded with people. In deals to buy a ticket in the National Palace Museum and set 320 Yuan. Movie theater 3D glasses to me, so I expect lol... was like a fantasy.

  • Very detailed museum regarding the history of the aborigines tribe in Taiwan. Interactive audiovisual material, suitable for kids as well. Discount for groups. Tours are only given in Chinese if there's no previous booking. Facilities are foreign friendly as it has English translation.
  • If you want an introduction to the culture of the first settlers of the land, this is a good place to start. The exhibits offer a glimpse of their way of life and how it was shaped by their natural environment and the arrival of foreign powers. The museum is small so it does not feel overwhelming. They offer discounts to visitors with tickets to the nearby National Palace Museum. There is a similar museum in Taipei called Ketagalan Culture Center. Admission to this other museum is free.
  • A very interesting museum, just steps from the National Palace Museum. It's a bit small, but still well worth a visit. Displays include model houses, a model hearth, weapons, farming implements, a fish trap, multiple musical instruments, weapons, clothing, and more.
  • Nice building but limited displays. Quiet and sleepy place, big contrast to the crowded Palace Museum across the street. Emphasis on the coastal tribes, not much about the hill tribes. Not too much about the history and ethnology of the people either. Hourly video show pretty lame. We lucked out and saw a performance of two aboriginal singers performing for a special group function, don't think this is a regular occurrence.
  • Very nice and quiet museum. There are good explanations in English. The museum shop has a nice variety of souvenirs, postcards, bags and books (also in English).
