Lanyang Museum蘭陽博物館


Lanyang Museum is housed in a building that exists in harmony with the earth. The main structure of the building is situated at the northwest side of the ruins in Wushigang Harbor; its aim is to conserve the wetland’s natural resources. Due to its unique exterior design, the museum has become a famous landmark in Yilan.

Lanyang Museum蘭陽博物館
The main building incorporates the shape of the cuestas commonly seen along the Beiguan Coast. To also present the seasonal colors of the Yilan Plain, the exterior walls were built with quality stones combined and arranged; the inspiration was the melody of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons. The walls mimic cuestas’ stone patterns as the color changes with the seasons and the light and shadow alter.

Walking on the aisle of Lanyang Museum, you will see the museum emblem overhead. The emblem’s design is derived from the Kavalan Aboriginal Tribe’s traditional wood-carved human figures, which represent “harmony between humans and nature” and the “association between humans and history”. In combination with the museum’s architectural characteristics, the permanent exhibitions inside are divided from top-down into the Mountains, Plains, Ocean, and Time Gallery. These exhibitions display Yilan’s geography, culture, history, and diverse natural resources.

In addition to these exhibitions, you can also visit the attractions around Lanyang Museum, such as Wushi Harbor, Wai’ao Beach, Guishan Island, and Toucheng Old Street, and plan your own in-depth trip in Yilan according to your own holiday schedule.

    We went there just to take picture of the architecture. It was a hot day so we didn't spend a lot of time there, not even entering the museum. Its a miss for us.

    A museum with special architectural design

    This was the first place we visited in Yilan. It is not a huge museum but the design and setting is so special. It is certainly a place wehre you can take a lot of nice photos. We were there on Sunday but not extremely busy. It is a great pity that we did not have enough time to go through exhibition halls. I know it tells the history and culture of Yilan. This will be the programme for our next visit!

    Nice building and interesting indoor and outdoor attractions. Easy to access and a number of restaurants around. If you visit the museum and should not miss the Mr. Brown castle 1 KM away you can have a very nice view of Pacific Ocean

    The museum was beautifully situated next to the fishing port with lots of glass windows for natural lighting. A comprehensive and detailed introduction to the natural environment, history and livelihood of the people of Yilan.
