Museums in New Taipei City are now implementing cultural equality initiatives, with the Shihsanhang Museum of Archaeology opening early for autistic visitors, the Tamsui Historical Museum holding Vietnamese language tours and the New Taipei City Yingge Ceramics Museum inviting Aboriginal ceramic artists to hold an exhibition.

The Shihsanhang Museum of Archaeology’s “early morning museum” is held on the first Saturday of every month, when the museum opens its doors an hour early so that autistic visitors can enjoy a quiet environment and have a space all to themselves. Autistic visitors to the “early morning museum” will have an area where they can read uninterrupted when they are feeling low which will help to reduce feelings of anxiety.

Meanwhile, the Tamsui Historical Museum is offering tours in Vietnamese so that new immigrants can learn more about Tamsui’s natural and cultural history in their mother tongue.

Last year, the Yingge Ceramics Museum held its first Aboriginal ceramics exhibition, showing the historical and contemporary development of Taiwanese Aboriginal ceramic culture. The Paiwan pots of Paiwan pottery artist Sakuliu Pavavalung, for example, make use of the hundred-pace snake decorative totem often seen in Paiwanese art and evocative of traditional Aboriginal art.
