Kuo Yuan Ye Museum of Cake and Pastry 郭元益糕餅博物館

Anchor point

Saturday:09:00 - 17:00




Hailing from China’s Zhangzhou area, the ancestor of Kuo Yuan Ye immigrated to Taiwan in 1708 and started a bakery that ushered in a new era for Taiwanese pastry. Nestled by the Shilin Bridge, Kuo’s century-old family business was successfully revamped as a “historic pastry brand” by the 4 generations of owners.

To preserve the prestigious brand’s historic assets accumulated over 100 years, Mr. Kuo founded Taiwan’s first pastry museum, offering further insight into how the Taiwanese Apastry and ceremonial customs have evolved over the span of time.

One year after the Yangmei museum was launched in 2001, Kuo Yuan Ye converted the 4th and 5th floors of its Shilin headquarters into “Kuo Yuan Ye Museum of Cake & Pastry”. Not only are the history of Taiwanese pastry and ceremonial traditions shown in an exhibit area, but the museum also offers hands-on baking experiences at the Joy Bakery and family-friendly events both in-and out-doors, in the hope that people of all ages will love and appreciate the art of Taiwanese pastry.
