Overview
More
Shung Ye Museum of Formosan Aborigines was officially opened in June 1994 as an ethnology museum that is dedicated to promoting mutual understanding between different ethnic groups, through research, preservation and exhibition of the material culture of Taiwan indigenous peoples. Through various educational activities, we hope to recall the wordless history and present the multi-cultural phases of Taiwan. The main displays of the museum introduce the natural environment of Taiwan’s indigenous peoples, their daily utensils, clothing and personal decoration, ritual objects and religious life. Films shown in the museum offer an understanding of the present conditions of the life of Taiwan indigenous peoples. Special indigenous-themed exhibitions, which are expected to be the urban window to tribal culture, are held at regular intervals in the special exhibition room located on the B1 floor.

Relatively small compared to the very large National Museum a short distance away. Nice collection of artifacts, clothing, photos well displayed and with English explanations for the non-native speaker. Very interesting and well done presentation of the aboriginal cultures. Highly recommended.
