    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).

    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.

    Nicely displayed and informative exhibits. Relatively small but certainly worth a visit especially for those interested in ancient cultures. Most of the exhibits includes english interpretations.

    Very nice place. You can learn a lot of things about Taiwanese indigenous people. I recommend here rather than palace museum.

    A compact museum that display Taiwanese aboriginal culture. Don't miss it while it's location very close to the Palace Museum!
