Kuchong Village is located in East District. Its name means "full of happiness and good luck" in Chinese.

Some of these collections were donated by overseas Chinese from the village. The village genealogies are also placed in the museum, and the rich explanations can deepen visitors' understanding of the hometown of overseas Chinese.
