Anchor point

Tuesday:09:30 - 17:00




The Tamsui River bank was once an archeology site for excavators in search of pottery, iron implements and other evidence of the past. It had been named Shihsanhang dig and later the Shihsanhang Museum of Archeology was built on the site. There is declination as you approach the museum to react the sensation of going into a dig. There are study rooms, an octagonal theater, something about preservation of the remains and a treasury exploring those remains.

    interesting useum, but visit with children


    this is an interesting little museum, with interesting architecture, a little out of the way in Bali on the other side of the Tamsui river. It's quite a long walk (give 40-45 minutes) if you take the ferry from Tamsui to Bali. The museum gives an interesting introduction to Taiwan's and Taipei's archaeological history, but it seems to be designed primarily for kids and adolescents. I visited on a very rainy day and was all on my own until ten busloads of school children and their teachers descended on the museum ......

    Nice intro to Taiwan


    Although it's not really huge, it is certainly very informative. Love all the displays, and how they were presented. Especially intriguing was the "anthropomorphic vase", which has perhaps become the "iconic symbol" of the Museum

    Enjoy the View


    The museum is geared to giving tours and lessons to school children so this would be a good place for families with children aged about 8 to 14. Excavation artifacts, pottery, jewelry and coins are clearly marked. Displays are described in both Chinese and English; an audio guide 'map and 'pen' provide the same information in 5 languages. The video in the theatre was in Chinese. There were no DIY projects when we toured. The snack room has drinks, fruit ice bars, and small fish or vegetable pizzas. The gift shop has mostly trinkets. Be sure to climb the outdoor theatre stairs and take in the ocean view. Best for those who have a high interest in the museum's theme and are spending time in the immediate area.

    館內環境舒適,停車方便,人潮也不會過多,可以很悠閒的吸收知識。 也有很多互動設施可以體驗考古工作的進行。 VR裝置很有趣,建議去預約體驗。逛累了還有咖啡廳可以休息,價格很合理,可以消磨一天。
