The reclamation of the Taipei Basin began with people from Jhangjhou and the Hakka. While Taipei area has evolved gradually into a metropolitan place, New Taipei City has the largest number of Hakka immigrants. In order to cohere the Hakka in New Taipei City and to help the general public know the Hakka culture, New Taipei City Government established particularly New Taipei City Hakka Museum in Sansia.
In addition to preserving the traditional Hakka culture, the Hakka Museum has made itself vivid with grand views, the overall planning, layout, and activity designs. New Taipei City Hakka Museum has been operated under the theme of “metropolitan Hakka” and the core value of “cultural innovation.” New Taipei City Hakka Museum also conducts research, preserves, and popularizes Hakka culture. The Museum is used for both meetings and leisure. It has an Art Gallery, a presentation room, a learning center, a conference room, a square, a regular exhibition room, an artistic corridor, a family reading room, a performance hall, and a restaurant.
