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. 

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

    Great place to visit

    5 2019-08

    We came here in a Tuesday morning and it wasn't too busy. Lots of free shows and all kinds of exhibits to see. A lot of the areas had DIY experiences too. Even without doing any DIY stuff we spent half a day here. The time went by pretty quickly. Many food and snack choices. Workers and performers were very friendly. Will definitely visit again if I'm in the area.

    Organised shops selling local wares

    3 2019-07

    This location is a purpose built site for various shops selling many local wares from Yilan province and beyond. The produce is interesting and in some shops, show how some of it is made. What was a bit disappointing was that there was no real authentic arts to admire. We did though spend quite a bit of time in the center and hence admired what they have done here. The street scenes are nice. At one point there was a performance which was also quite good.

    This is one of the biggest cultural Centre we have been to and every building showcases different arts, crafts and food of the region. Very informational.

    A cluster of traditional arts shops

    2 2019-05

    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.

    5 2019-01

    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.
