  • 矗立在烏石港不遠的蘭陽博物館,不僅以半面山的造型,巍峨聳立,更是蘭陽的新地標,宜蘭的驕傲 ! 全台灣的博物館,惟獨蘭陽博物館最具代表性和特色。它把山海的意象,融入在整個建築之一。 這是惟一將建築物本體,與地形地貌相結合處。 距烏石港不遠,步行約十分鐘。眺望龜山島就在眼前。 很可惜,當天是星期三~館休 不得其門而入。 它和一般公家機關週一公休不同。只能博物館外拍照留念。  more »
  • 建築特色與當地自然景觀融合,不突兀,只是展覽的內容對幼童來說可能稍嫌無聊。用餐區也精心規劃,整體都很有藝術人文氣息,外面的水池有些魚,孩子很喜歡。  more »
  • 停車場沒有,卻得往旁邊烏石港方向停,與之差距三百公尺甚至更遠有,當天載的是行動不便的長輩,雖然下車可以臨停,上車位置卻必須車子遶過一U字型省道大圈回來,而且下雨天真得不方便,取車人不方便,等著搭車殘障人士更不方便,外面迎賓處動線明顯設計相當失敗。對於抵達與離開該處的無障礙設施明顯失敗。  more »

  • 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.
