Yingge Ceramics Museum

Yingge Ceramics Museum
The Taipei County Yingge Ceramics Museum [臺北縣立鶯歌陶瓷博物館] is a great stop for anyone wishing to get out of Taipei City for a day.  Cathy and I took my parents there while they were visiting Taiwan and we all loved it.  Signs are in both Chinese and English, there’s an audio-tour, and it’s easily accessible by train or bus!

  1. Gorgeous photos Todd. I remember going there in 2005, quite fascinating place.I should make another trip there really. This whole series is just incredible. I suppose you had hard time to pick these 3 photos from the whole set. I especially liked the fish photo from flickr set 😉

  2. Add this to the list of places I still haven’t been to. It’s amazing to think that I’ve been in Taiwan for 6 years, traveled extensively through the island and still have so much of it that I haven’t seen. Thanks for the report.

  3. Ashish – Thanks, picking the photos was hard. It’s a really fun place to photograph, don’t forget your prime lens (no flash allowed)!

    Craig – I think I would rate this as one of my top three favorite museums in Taiwan.

  4. This are great photos. Especially the earth tones and composition of the first image. Yingge is a very interesting town, I will have to go back and check out the ceramics museum.
