Have an interactive environmental experience at Lanyang Museum, representing the area's geography and history. Divided into three parts, the exhibits cover Taiwan's mountains, plains, and oceans.

Play interactive games at the theater, enjoy the 90-degree imagery on the walls and floor, and witness the formation of Lanyang plains over the last million years.

  • 交通方便,從台北搭乘國道客運可在蘭陽博物館站下車。 進來的右手邊有免費置物櫃,貼心方便。 以宜蘭地理生態、風俗文化為主題的博物館,是個認識這個城市的好地方。 印象深刻的是觀看宜蘭誕生的影片(互動劇場)和坐在椅子上選聽傳統民謠。 休息時在一旁販賣部吃了魏姐粉圓,之後前往頭城老街逛逛。 值得一遊,下次希望能聽到導覽。 
  • 蘭陽博物館以前曾來過,很具蘭陽文化特色,因此此次家族旅遊特地安排參觀,可惜的是,農曆年初一竟然休館,一群人只能在外面拍照留念。還好蘭陽博物館外型建築很特別,搭配旁邊的生態池很美。 
  • 蘭陽有很多博物館,各具特色,身为官方版首次大建築,值得一探宜蘭美學的初始站。 從台北圆山捷運站搭車往烏石港,终站即是蘭博館,交通便。 但建議地方争取可從頭城老街沿公路闢建自行車和人行道,連到蘭博館,更加便民。

  • The stuff in souvenir shop is very unique.. got free ice cream tester.. 😋 the entrance to museum (2 types) only 130NTD.. and nearby there're many seafood restaurant.. highly recommended!
  • I came here just to see the museum building! The rising masses against the mountain backdrop made really nice photographs. The exhibits were interesting, we got to see a travelling exhibition on Chinese Paintings while we were there. A little walking required from the Station, but i think its well worth the effort.
  • I served as a volunteer in this great Museum before. Although it spends 15 min walk from Tou-cheng Train Station, it describes the beauty of Yilan locally, even spreading to the scope of Taiwan. I preferred the "plain" topics because it is popular and easy to access for our life other than "mountains" and "ocean", respectively. But the critical challenges for this museum are limited in exhibition areas as well as there are not many functional and attractive spots nearby, somehow in summer the pier nearby offers the cruise to Gue-shan Island. Meanwhile, the outskirts were nurtured a small ecological system by the struggling of the museum staffs. I highly recommended tourists, if visiting Yilan, could consider this museum as the first window to know the history and beauty of Yilan.
  • Astonishing Architecture, but I don't really get what this museum stands for in terms of exhibition. There no collection of art piece but only lecturing the history of the local geography. I didn't pay and go inside the museum, only staying at the lobby, food court and gift shop. Had gelato with local favor, which is red guava and quite descent.
  • This museum seems more appropriate to children. As well, there are few tourist spots near the museum. So, I would not visit the museum again. But there is a decent food court in the museum.
