National Center for Traditional Arts國立傳統藝術中心


The Center for Traditional Arts in Dongshan River Scenic Area has added several pieces of installation art, such as Misty Forest and Tunnel of Leaping Fish. The place is an attraction suitable for the whole family to enjoy the cultural tour together.

Walking into the park at the Center for Traditional Arts makes you feel like falling into a time tunnel. The streets decorated with red walls and black tiles are blended with the architectural styles of the old streets everywhere in Taiwan. All sorts of special stores, such as workshops and early Taiwanese variety stores, stand along the streets. Here, you may see things that trigger the fun memories of your childhood, such as dough figurine sculptures, sugar onion, traditional toys, glove puppetry, etc. 
When you feel tired after shopping, you can bring your children to the parent and child area to play and, or have some Taiwanese specialty food to replenish the lost energy. Or you can go to the performance hall and take a seat to enjoy the troupe’s performance; you will be able to completely bask in the performance as you listen to the sonorous and delicate singing as this slowly vanishing art is a part of our cultural heritage.

In addition, you can try many interesting activities, such as hand dyeing fabric, handmade woodcraft, and making oil-paper umbrellas. The center not only allows visitors to eat and play at the same time, but hopes to blend art into life through understanding the beauty of traditional art with the help of these handmade activities, splendid performances, and traditional architecture.

    A cluster of traditional arts shops

    I do not understand why there is a charge for entry. The place is filled with shops. It is kind of a shopping centre instead of arts cluster.

    Gamut of traditional hands-on workshops: DIY classes, woodworks, tea ceremony, pottery, indigo dyeing, blown glass, etc. Other features include conference center, hotel, canal boat rides, puppet shows, museums, ... It's a cultural complex for learning and appreciating the arts, slowing down, and absorbing everything.

    I like this place because of a lot of traditional stuffs. Especially things about tea. Tea pots and cups were beatiful. If you walk around there it would be nice.They care well of ground and facilities.

    The National Center for Traditional Arts, founded in January 2002, is very large. You can visit building and streets in Taiwan's old time. There are many unique stores, exhibition places, and performance indoor halls. The performances are very distinctive. The architecture and scenery are very beautiful. And it is very suitable for taking pictures, walking. You can enjoy a good experience in an old street shop or workshop. This is a great place to travel with your family. 成立於2002年1月的國家傳統藝術中心,園區廣闊,你可以參觀台灣舊時代的建築和街道。 園區內有許多獨特的商店,展覽場所和表演室內大廳,有很獨特的表演節目外,因為建築和風景非常美麗,所以也非常適合拍照與散步。你可以在舊街商店或工作坊享受良好的體驗。 來到宜蘭,這是個闔家旅遊的絕佳地點。

    A surprise in overnight trip to Yilan County Taiwan

    4 2019-02

    When my friends were wondering what can we do in the morning, we ended up enjoying about 2.5 hours at this traditional art center. Friend who visited the center last year said this visit found more additions of displays and traditional arts such as traditional soaps making museum and other handicrafts. There were wedding procession with twelve animals and in traditional costumes and fashion.
