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!
The museum’s permanent exhibitions include: Traditional Pottery Techniques, Development of Taiwan Ceramics, the History of Yingge, Prehistoric/Aboriginal/Contemporary Ceramics, and High-tech Ceramics. The museum is admision free during their extended evening hours on the second Saturday of every month [Offical Website details].
