Shihsanhang Museum of Archaeology is located on Bali's Left Bank, in New Taipei City. It's northern Taiwan's only archaeological museum. It's also the only location that possesses prehistoric iron-smelting technology in Taiwan as well, and may be the ancestors of Taiwan's Pingpu and Ketagalan peoples. Shihsanhang has been designated by the Ministry of the Interior as a grade 2 historical monument. The museum building and plaza reaches 4 hectares in size. It incorporates permanent exhibitions of relics unearthed on site, a special exhibition hall, and an archaeological learning room.  Culture and relics relevant to Shihsanhang are introduced in the museum, as well as botanical garden culture, and others. With Shihsanhang acting as a center, rich and varied ruins, natural reserves, waterfront landscapes, historical and cultural vestiges, industrial culture, and public facilities all surround it. Together, they all create the Danshui River and Bali Left Bank Cultural and Ecological Area. Shihsanhang Museum utilizes three different styles of buildings to express the image of mountains, seas, and the past and present. While visiting, you can also take the time to observe the nearby rich ecology  and landscape such as mangroves and crabs, water birds and herons, and the beautiful river and sea scenery.
