There are also interactive exhibits and products of Sanxing to sell. It is a good place to start... More

I believe this place is run by the government. It gave a very comprehensive and detailed introduction of the local specialties with interactive device, just like a mini-museum. However, it also appeared to be poorly maintained because some of the computers did not work and apparently the staff had not noticed it.

Like making the fresh pancakes and eating them. Really delicious and fresh. Makes a nice stop for a few hours if you have a car. Worth a visit if you are in Yilan. Nice scenery around the farm.

The entrance had a very cute signage of 2 spring onions on a bicycle. Quite a nice touch! The museum showcase how the plant was cultivated, grown and harvested - something I found very refreshing. There was some biscuits, pastries and food on sale, including the plant itself.

It was a small museum with nothing much to see. More like promoting the onion filled food they sell.

Sanshing (Three Stars) town is famous for its spring onion (also known as green onion or scallions). Unlike our local spring onion with flat stalk/leaf, Sanshing has giant round stalk/leaf and it's extra fragrant and flavorful! So it's just natural to have a museum that exhibits awesome local produce. Entrance is free for everyone in this museum. Inside the museum... More
