About the Museum
New Taipei City Yingge Ceramics Museum opened on November 26, 2000 and is Taiwan’s first ceramics-themed museum. It is dedicated to the research, curation, preservation, and maintenance of Taiwan’s ceramics culture and art while performing work in exhibition and education. The Museum actively engages in international exchange by inviting international resident artists, joining the Smithsonian Institution, and becoming reciprocal museums with museums in Germany and Spain. Yingge Ceramics Museum is committed to bringing the beauty of Taiwan’s ceramics to the world and showcasing the energy of Taiwan’s ceramics culture and ceramic art.
Yingge has more than two hundred years of history in producing ceramics and is the ceramics capital of Taiwan. In 2000, New Taipei City government selected Yingge for Taiwan’s first ceramics-themed museum, with goals to develop local tourism, drive the transformation of the ceramics industry in Yingge, and provide a platform for showcasing and exchanging achievements in Taiwan’s ceramic art. As a specialized ceramics museum, Yingge Ceramics Museum has assumed the responsibilities of preserving knowledge in ceramics, reviving the ceramics industry, and promoting ceramic art. With full dedication, we engage in ceramics research, curation, and education while continuing international exchange, coordinating local industries, promoting cultural diversity and equal rights, and enriching lifestyles with the aesthetics of ceramics, thus elevating Taiwan’s ceramics industry and ceramic art to the global arena.
