Lukang Folk Arts Museum can be found at Changhua County's Lukang Township, on Zhongshan Road, No.152, in the back alley of Lukang Street. Lukang's Gu Family was one of Taiwan's five prominent families, and their family originated with Gu Xianrong. During the Japanese occupation era, the current governor-general granted the Gu family permission to build a house in Lukang. Gu Xiangrong successfully managed to acquire much salt, sugar, opium, camphor, and other goods through business, all while  engaging in land development and financial undertakings. To this day, the family still plays a pivotal role in Taiwan's political and business circles. The private Lukang Folk Arts Museum was built in 1919 in an antique style. It's architectural style is quite detailed, and houses a painting collection, cultural relics, donations from the Lukang townspeople, folk relics from Taiwan, paintings from the Kangxi period, paintings by contemporary artists, calligraphy, historical documents, folk paintings, and more.
