      The museum is located at the connecting point where the river meets the ocean in Ba-Li. The building itself is considered second level ancient remain named Thirteen Hung Ancient Cultural Remain. The museum itself occupied over 2000 pings out of total 3600 pings of land. The original concept of this structure came from the notion of how ancestors across oceans to Taiwan. The building was built 1.5 meters under the ground on purpose. Therefore, when you enter the museum, you will go slightly down to the slope. The design is symbolized as the anthropologists go underground for their discovery. The first floor is mainly for the education purposes. The second floor has all the displays of the ancient products were made, such as pottery, metal, and smelter. It also displays the trading goods from foreign countries in the early age and the things people got buried with from a long time ago. To get here, please take Taipei Metro to Tamshui first, and then take boat or bus to destination; or take Metro to Guan-Du, then take bus Red-22; or take Metro to Peitou and then take bus 632 to destination.
