General Information

The Gold Museum is Taiwan’s first museum planned as an eco-museum, the aim being to combine community power and completely preserve the precious natural resources, mining relics, landscape, historical memories and cultural property of Jinguashi, attempting to give them a new life. The various facilities and buildings of the museum display Jinguashi’s various resources using a catalogue method, aiming to guide visitors into the environment and allow them to experience the rich resources in the environment. Planning of the museum began in 2002. It was formally opened on November 4, 2004.
The aim and objectives of establishment were:
1.Preserving and reproducing mining history and cultural features
2.Making the museum a natural venue for environmental education
3.Promoting gold art and metal crafts, establishing creative industry
4.Community eco-museum
In the museum’s property preservation-centered operations, there is a stress on sustainable operation and the recycling and re-use of original building materials. Local people are encouraged to become involved to stimulate area development. The operating model is the first of its kind in Taiwan and opens a new page for the development of cultural property protection and creativity.

About Residency

Since the grand opening in 2004, Gold Museum has been dedicated to the preservation and re-energizing of the mining cultural heritages in the Greater Shuijinjiu (Shuinandong-Jinguashi-Jiufen) area. On a continuing basis, the purpose of the program “Looking for LOHAS Talents” is to enhance the linkages between local features and environmental resources, and to fully present the integration of mining cultural heritage and the history of the area.
In August 2012, Gold Museum introduced a new aspect of “working holiday” by opening the Japanese-style residences to guests, welcoming the accommodation of guest artists with opportunities to experience the old memories of the site. The program aimed to open up new communications between guest artists and local artists as a way to stimulate collective creativity within the Greater Shuijinjiu area. Fortunately, the Museum was able to continue carrying out the program each year since 2012, including 2015. It is looking forward to bring about greater and deeper interactions between non-local and local artists, as well as their surrounding cultures, customs and environments. “Looking for LOHAS Talents” is a year-round program; guest artists are invited to a full series of festivals and events within and nearby the Greater Shuijinjiu area, in which they would be able to obtain true spiritual relief that is hardly acquired in urban life. We hope that, by enjoying in such a relief, guest artists will be able to accumulate creative momentums for their own benefit as well as the interactions as a whole. Also, this self-motivated creativeness will further shorten the distance between artists and the public.
