Very well laid out and exhibits are replicated well. The information was easy to read and follow. It is useful for children learning history of Yi Lan. The description of fishing and farming was useful. The view of the lake was great from the top floor.

The initial proposal from the driver was to spend the time at the Plum Blossom Lake. But we will be going to Sun Moon Lake so I was looking for some variety. I saw the museum when I was checking out the distance and time between places of interests suggested by the driver on Google map.

The first impression of the museum wasn't great as the drivers let us alight at the designated bay along the main road. Thereafter, we had to walk down the steps to the museum. Good thing was we were there on Friday late afternoon and the museum wasn't crowded so my aunt could take her time to negotiate the stairs. Then, when we were queuing to purchase the tickets, we were informed that seniors above 65 years old can enter free which made my elderlies very happy. Do note that the elderlies will get a stamp on their hand to indicate free entry. My mother went to the toilet immediately after that and almost washed off the stamp.

The recommended tour to is take the escalators up to the fourth floor then make use of the lift to go to each floor. It is very informative and well organised. There are sections on plants and insects of Yilan, daily lives of the indigenous people in Yilan in the past, info on the coast of Yilan and the fishes there etc.

We were there till the museum closed at 5 pm.

The building is different from any other building and it creates a image that it is sinking (or) raising from ground.

Excellent facilities and amazing collection for all the age groups.

First of all the architect itself was just brilliant! The museum was also interesting, can be quite crowded during the weekends, but worth a visit!
