Shihsanhang Museum is located in Bali but can be reached from Tamsui. We just need to ride a boat from Tamsui fisherman’s wharf to Bali then ride a bus going to the museum.
The museum is such an awesome site! It has astounding architectural design that is very hippy & modern. We even stayed a bit outside the museum appreciating all the sights there. As you can see in the pictures, the inclined roof is actually a staircase where we can climb up and have a look into the youngest volcano in Taiwan, Taipei Harbor & even the Tamsui River.
Anyway, Shihsanhang Museum of Archaeology offers exhibits on artifacts from Taiwan’s earliest residents. The museum had a lot of interactive areas in each of the exhibits. It was very kid & child-friendly! Those areas would really make your kids and also young at heart like us to be very entertained. They will also make our brains work coz some of the games were presented in trivia form.
Here are some of the exhibits during our visit:
- Taiwan Landbridge Fauna – during the 1970s, fishermen caught a number of human & animal fossils in Penghu archipelago. The exhibit showcased the story of those discoveries as well as excavation & restoration.
- Back to Shihsanhang – the story begins with a Major in the Taiwanese Air Force who discovered the Shihsanhang Site. While flying over the site, the major recorded strange readings. The Major’s recording and other reports on the “rescue excavation” from the site is used to introduce visitors to the Shihsanhang people who lived here.
