Yilan Ark- The Cultural Center for Yilan

As a giant ark, the cultural center is not only a space for people to see the beautiful scenery but a carrier to show people the diverse arts and humanities in Yilan. Because located next to Taipei Metropolitan Area, Yilan becomes the “Taipei backyard” for its beautiful scenery. However, at the same time when we enjoy the good food and view, we never know there is a rich and unique culture and history in Yilan. If Yilan Museum is where we know the beauty of Yilan, now we urgently need a cultural center for Yilan to know its rich culture better.
