Juming Museum

Museum in Taiwan's Northeast Coast

This museum and sculpture park is where you'll see the riveting works of Taiwan's best-known contemporary sculptor, Ju Ming (1938–), against the backdrop of nature. Ju Ming has works strewn all over the world, but the collection here is the most sizeable. It includes the massive, minimalist stone pieces of the celebrated 'Tai Chi' series. You can spend anywhere from two hours to half a day here but note that the cafe only sells pastries.

The North Coast Shuttle Bus offered by the Taiwan Tourism Board (www.taiwantrip.com.tw) travels between Tamsui metro station (Red Line 2) and Keelung Railway Station (淡水), leaving every 30 minutes on weekends and every hour on weekdays. The fare is NT$100 for a one-day pass. Juming Museum also runs a shuttle bus from Jinshan District Office; see the website for details.
