Beitou Museum was formally opened to the public as a private museum in 1984. The museum's collection is now comprised of more than 5,000 pieces, focusing on the folkways, arts and crafts of Taiwan from the late Qing, the period of Japanese domination and into the 1970s. there are over 3,000 pieces deriving from the Hakka and Hokkien of Han Chinese, as well as more than 1,000 pieces from Taiwan Indigenous peoples. These collections can be classified into clothing, including 1,500 pieces of varied and excellent embroideries, rattan works, wood carvings, ceramics, glove puppets, shadow puppets, ancient and modern paintings, and calligraphy. As the structures almost reach 100 years, Beitou Museum has been dedicated to preserving and displaying the folk arts, customs, and historical relics of Taiwan's earlier eras with over 100 exhibitions and cultural events taking place here. Today, the room is designed for permanent exhibition on specific themes to display our invaluable collections. The variety of these Taiwanese cultural relics and their practicality in everyday life reflect the creativity of traditional folk arts and the social background in earlier days. We would like to share such disappearing invaluable culture with you.
