The Kuo Yuan Ye Museum of Cake and Pastry (simplified Chinese: 郭元益糕饼博物馆; traditional Chinese: 郭元益糕餅博物館; pinyin: Guōyuányì Gāobǐng Bówùguǎn) is a pastry culture and making museum in Taiwan.[1][2]

The museum has two branches in Taiwan, one in Shilin District, Taipei and another in Yangmei District, Taoyuan City.[3]

History

In 1708, ancestor of Kuo Yuan Ye moved from Zhangzhou to Taiwan within the Fujian Province of Qing Dynasty and started the family bakery business.[citation needed] To preserve the brand asset, the family opened a bakery museum at the 4th and 5th floor of the headquarters buildings in Yangmei District as Taiwan's first bakery museum in 2001.[4] In 2002, the Shilin branch of the bakery museum was founded.[5]
