I-Lan Museum Association Introduction

Background of Founding

Yilan has its own unique nature environments as well as courteous and lively cultural characteristics. Meanwhile, along with the developments of modern museum concepts moving towards “Eco museum, or Living environment museum), we would also take the whole Yilan as a museum. Categorizing the natural and cultural resources in the county, those of which are with potential to develop partially or fully into a museum from the developments either on research, collection, exhibition or education, are dubbed with the name as “Alternative Museum”. In this way, we make progress on the preservation, maintenance, exhibition education or tourism function for the natural and cultural resources of the whole county.

The “Yilan Museum Association” was established in May 2001, and it is a not-for-profit social group in the private sector. Besides promoting the developments of museum business in the county, it has also put efforts to improve the function of museum in the community creation, strengthening its collaborations with other cultural businesses, in order to preserve as well as maintain local culture and nature assets. Up to date, it has a total of 55 group members including small scale size of museums, which are either already up running or still under preparation, as well as individual members with more than several tens in number that are passionate and supportive of museum works. Its members are from diverse aspects, ranging from nature, culture, geography, ethnicity and industry, bringing together public sector, school, community as well as both of the public and private museums in the local areas, such as local industries and art galleries. At the same time, it is also a visionary team of “Sowing for proliferation, to safeguard our home” as well as an organization to learn and grow with one another among its members.

Since its establishment, the Association has implemented community resource survey and installation, marketing, education, plus Pei-Chi learning plan, and has held community exchanges, learning between the parents and children, teachers’ seminars, school children visiting activities, as well as emulation and seminar forums, assisting the various family museums, and take part in the communities for improving both of their software and hardware structures, devising their development blueprints.

The museum family members of the Association are widespread in the Yilan County, with their comprehensive characteristics to cover nature and ecology, culture and education, art and crafts, sustainability, creativity value add-on industry, as well as agriculture/fishery leisure and experiencing.
