It also has a temporary exhibition hall. Besides all those, Tainan branch has the first chamber of archaeology in Taiwan. It’s shown with the concept of a warehouse and it allows visitors to observe the process of preservation through the glass windows.
Kids Hall is designed for family to understand the prehistory culture by games and imaginations. Using the Austronesian mythology as the elements of games, theaters and interactions, it allows our mindset and perception to be closer to those of the prehistory humans.
The mythology is the main concept of the exhibition. “Ocean Dome Theater” let the audiences sit on a kayak and experience a magical ride. “The Mythology” uses digital light sculpture technology to project stories on the wall. “The Tales of Fire” allow audiences to think and try to make fire from hitting rocks and woods. “The Sun and Tree Genies” is a fitness area with slides, ball pool and webs climbing. “Forest Maze” is a game of hunting and locating through sounds. “Game Area” provides a space for group activities for kids of all ages and last but not least, “Sand Bunker” is built for family to experience the digging process of archaeology.
After visiting all the halls, visitors can visit the views and art pieces around it, such as the house of YingSong, the pavilions with sugar factor and hut designs etc. We establish a zero distance conversation space among visitors, Tainan Branch and Arts with public arts displayed around the park.
