MUSEUMS

The multiple facets of Taiwan are showcased in hundreds of museums. At one end are big names like the National Palace Museum. At the other, specialized institutions devoted to puppetry, human rights, even salt and paper. And between them, a plethora of fine history, technology and art museums. Many museums are located in attractive historical buildings. Tainan’s National Museum of Taiwan Literature occupies a stately Japanese colonial building. The lavish mansion of a wealthy local family now shelters the enjoyable Lugang Folk Arts Museum.
