China's Furniture Museum was built in response to government efforts in recent years to encourage cultural development. Its purpose is to continue and promote the culture of traditional Chinese furniture and to coordinate with the rich forest resources of Taoyuan County and the quality traditional furniture craftsmanship of Dasi Township.

Occupying over 300 pings, the museum is located in the basement of the Taoyuan County Cultural Center. The museum has two functions: (1) to collect and display a wide range of furniture; and (2) to engage in research and education. The museum is dedicated to displaying Chinese furniture, traditional furniture and modern furniture based on traditional craftsmanship techniques. Most exhibits are of Chinese traditional wooden furniture, with a focus on the development, function and craftsmanship of the furniture; and furniture made with other materials. Furniture from the Ming and early Qing dynasties demonstrate traditional Chinese furniture, and Taiwanese furniture from earlier periods are examples of furniture in the Qing Dynasty. It also gives an overview of traditional furniture makers in Dasi, Taoyuan.

Taoyuan has many cultural relics because it was developed early. The Mt. Hutou Temple (Martyr Shrine) on Mt. Hutou in Taoyuan City was built during the period of Japanese colonization. It is a good place for visitors to learn more about the history of Taoyuan. The Old Street Area in Tahsi witnessed the development of the entire township and even the county. It is a perfect place for recalling old history. Wugan Old Street in Yangmei also testifies to the development of Yangmei. With surviving relics, we can easily imagine the prosperity of the area as a commercial center in earlier times...

●Introduction to "The Natural History of Taiwan"

The natural environment is the basis for human survival; therefore, it is meaningful to have the exhibition of natural history as the starting point for the museum exhibitions.

The island of Taiwan was formed by a rapid rise in the seafloor due to the collision between the Eurasia plate and Philippine Sea plate. The basis of the great diversity of creatures in Taiwan was established with animals and plants emigrating from Southern China owing to the topographical changes in the sea level because of changes in the weather as the Ice Age began and ended. For the last four hundred years, movements of population in Taiwan have been relatively frequent. Many species have been introduced to Taiwan either deliberately or unintentionally from the rest of the world, and they have become new immigrants which cannot be ignored.

The Natural History of Taiwan Exhibition Hall has designed a route that takes visitors to visit the three exhibition rooms of Origin, the Ice Age and the Holocene Period in order of eras. It introduces the sequence of "The Natural History of Taiwan" by exploring the major events occurring in the three time zones. The contents are arranged in the sequence "Geology-Ecology-Human", and then the interaction between people and the natural environment is introduced, so as to relate to the exhibitions of the prehistory and tribes in the southern lands that are to come.

The concept of public arts became highly popular in major cities around the world during the past decades. Not until 1992 when Culture and Art Support Statute was enacted in Taiwan did people grow familiar with this term and apply the concept in cityscape building islandwide. Through installations of public, the government, the creating artists and the general public are brought even closer.

The purpose of public art installations to enhance the sense of beauty of the public environment and to provide the public with living spaces rich in cultural contents and aesthetic perceptions. Only after the public become closer with arts and more willing to participate in art activities can the spiritual life of citizens in Taiwan be elevated and the national cultural construction promoted.
