Located in Yilan and near the Wushi Harbor ,Lanyang Museum is a place which you can know more about the culture and history of Yilan and the people live here. The Museum is famous for its architecture and landscape. Before I went into the museum, I found out that the design of the architecture is very unique. It is at an angle and looks like a mountain. When it is reflected by the water, the scenery is very beautiful and beyound description.
Since the appearance of the architecture is so special, I started to be curious about what’s in the museum and can not wait to explore. In the museum, we can overlook the scene of the harbor and sometimes we can saw the ships through the window. When I walk around the museum, I discovered many plants which grow in the Lanyang plain and insects and birds here also. There is also some introduction of the story of the people living here since many years ago. To know the lifestyle of the aborigines here is very interesting. It is difficult to imagine how the ancient people make a living all on their own. Furthermore ,there is also a fish boat displays and people can go on to the fish boat and experience the feeling of standing on it just like the fishermen go fishing on the sea. You can also see the small theatre or documentary which display some story which happened here can get more close to this land.
When I walk out the museum, I saw the birds standing by the lake leisurely, catching fish or bugs from the water, and the scenery made me feel relaxed. We decided to go to restaurant for lunch then. Since it is near the Wushi Harbor, there are some restaurants selling seafood. We chose a restaurant and ordered some seafood, fried vegetable and oyster soup. The seafood was fresh and delicious and I enjoy the taste of the fish.

After we finished our lunch, we went to the Mr. Brown Café castle. It is near the Lanyang Museum and on the top of a mountain. It is also a famous tourist site and people can drink coffee and enjoy the beautiful scenery. I bought a cup of coffee and overlooked the sea and Guishan Island. Besides the view of the sea, there is also a beautiful windmill. It is a great place to take pictures. This trip to Yilan was great and I got some nice pictures here.
