A “history sky-bridge” within the museum was built to offer space for special exhibits, and offers visitors an experience to the past to learn more about the Shihsanhang culture and its influence to Taiwan.
The museum, through various entertaining methods, details the sites’ importance of Shihsanhang culture discovery. It allows us to have a peek into what life was about a millennium ago. Periodically, there are exhibits on the history of Tamsui river. The special exhibits are more relaxed in nature, offers visitors abundance in knowledge and entertainment.
