Hello everyone. I’m @olivertomolife and I’ve studied abroad in Kaohsiung!
Do you have a problem with cultural activities in Kaohsiung?
Well, this article can help you solve your problems!
Because there are many museums in Kaohsiung.
The museums introduced in this article are free of charge, so they can be recommended to first-time visitors.
I would like to introduce you to some of them, from a museum where you can learn the truth to a museum with a large park.
I’ve been on a working holiday in Kaohsiung for a year since 2020. I’m currently writing a blog based on my experience.
So, let’s get to the meat of the story.
Three of the best museums in Kaohsiung!
1 Kaohsiung City Museum
The Kaohsiung City Museum was built during the Japanese colonial era and was used as Kaohsiung City Hall from 1939.
After the war in 1945, the museum ceased to function as the city hall, and in 1988, it was opened as a museum to exhibit various aspects of Kaohsiung’s history.
One of the most notable permanent exhibits is the 228 Incident exhibit, where visitors can learn about the tragic history of Kaohsiung.
By looking at the materials and exhibits from that time, you can learn about the true history of the city, so please visit the museum.
The museum is a 10-minute walk from Yanchengpu Station, and admission is free.
2 Takao railway Museum
Takao Railway Museum was established in 1900 as a railroad depot for the Taiwan Governor’s Office and opened as a museum in 2010.
In the past, the station served as Kaohsiung Harbor Station.
In 2008, due to the convenience of trucking and roads, it was regrettably closed down, but the Kaohsiung City Government is working to preserve its past for future generations.
Admission is free, and with so many trains and objects in the lush green park, I think this is a place that people of all ages can enjoy.
3 Kaohsiung Port History Museum
The Kaohsiung Port History Museum was used as the Kaohsiung Port Customs Office since 1914, but has been out of use since 1994.
It was scheduled to be demolished, but the decision was made to preserve it, and it was opened as a museum in 2002.
It is a spectacular red-brick building that reminds us of the times when it was built.
You can visit the museum for free to see the history and materials from that time.
The surrounding scenery is beautiful day and night, making it a great place to take a walk.
