The Lukang Folk Arts Museum in Taiwan’s Lukang Township was once the stately home of the Koo family, one of the oldest and wealthiest families in the region. It is now a museum containing more than 6,000 pieces, most of which date back to the Ming and Qing dynasties, offering a unique glimpse of life in another era. Among the collection you’ll find vintage photographs, household items, lacquer ware, carved stones, porcelain items, embroidery, musical instruments, and religious artifacts. Architecture-lovers will enjoy the building's striking blend of Asian and Western styles, plus the Fujianese-style house within the grounds that’s more than 200 years old.
Museum entry is included on various attraction pass options, allowing you to visit a number of Taiwan’s top sights. To explore Lukang in-depth, look for 2-, 3-, or 4-day tour from Taipei.
