Also called China Museum for Fujain-Taiwan Kinship
Sep 2018 • Couples
Very impressive building. First floor is the history of Fujian and Taiwan - One blood. Worth a visit - Admission free and should take you an hour or so.

Interesting museum about Fujian - Taiwanese links
Jul 2017 • Solo
This museum is all about the links in culture between Fujian and Taiwan. It has a lot of displays about culture, such as religion, local traditions, festivals etc, as well as historical information. The displays are in English and Mandarin. The museum is next door to the Quanzhou Museum. I went to both, and I think there is quite a bit of crossover in terms of content regarding the culture between the two museums. Outside this museum is a large square and fountain/water feature, which is very attractive, and the West Lake Park is just across the road so it is a nice area for tourists, although they are a little separated form the centre of the city and there are no restaurants nearby, but there were many food stalls by the park when I visited.
I spent about 1 1/2 hours there, which was enough for me.

Fujian and Taiwan are one?
Dec 2016 • Friends
The architecture of the building is excellent inside and out; the roof is stunning and looks suitable for a UFO landing while the outside grounds have classic columns and tiled modern columns.
The displays are well presented with dual Chinese and English explanations and are quite meticulous and educational covering many facets of daily life, arts and crafts, culture as well as historical events.
But really the displays are slanted to a propaganda exercise - that since the Fujian people colonized Taiwan, Taiwan is part of China.
In fact the propaganda became repetitive and boring until I decided to ignore the some message printed over and over again in each section.
Part of the display details the atrocities the Japanese inflicted on the Fujian people but I am curious how the Fujian people treated the indigenous people. Did I miss that?
It seems the museum was really built to prove that Taiwan is part of China which of course is China's take on the matter and it seems that the Taiwanese people don't get a say in that..

Museum Comprehensively Surveying the Links Between Fujian and Taiwan
Oct 2016 • Couples
This is an enormous museum (two floors) covering the innumerable similarities between the peoples and cultures of Fujian and Taiwan: history, folk art, architecture, music/dance, efforts to fend off foreign invaders, etc. It's free, air conditioned, Has a cafe, and a store. Next door to the Quanzhou museum. Only reason not to mark it as 5 was that most of the video displays were not working.

The museum has attracted interest and support from people born and living across the straits. Many scholars, architects and the world-acclaimed artist who is best know for his work with gunpowder , have contributed their ideas, collections and works over the past years.

Good Museum
Apr 2016 • Family
This is a museum to showcase the kinship between Fujian & Taiwan people. Although there is a heavy hint that Taiwan should be part of China here, it's a good museum which shows the culture & heritage of Fujian people.

There is an interesting black & white painting of a tree in its lobby, made with explotion of fire crackers.
