Lanyang museum was named after the Lanyang plains (yilan county of today) and sits beside the Wushigang harbor.
With the aim of blending the architecture with Taiwan natural mountainous landscape, Lanyang museum was designed to resemble a cuesta (erosion of rock formations thoughout the years), which is a common type of structure found along coastal areas of Taiwan. Lanyang museum sits strategically amidst the Lanyang plains resembling a cuesta at the very intersection where ocean, mountains and rivers meet.
Within this magnificent structure lies the history of Yilan natural landscape formation and culture of locals throughout centuries.
Lanyang museum is truly an eye opener for curious visitors wanting to understand more about Yilan. This gorgeous architecture also serves as a hideaway for the scorching weather.
