Although there is not a great deal to see at the railway museum, what is there shows a lot of the history of the island and gives a sense of how things grew during the Japanese occupation. Also, just a short walk from the museum...More

It is a small museum with a few old trains. From here, you could get on the new LRT system and get to The Pier-2 Art Center or if not, you could simply walk over as it is just next door.

This is one of the highlights of my stay in Kaohsiung as entering the museum gives one that glimpse of the past, alongside their modern railway system. I loved walking through the landscaped areas even if it was noon.

Our tour bus took us to the Takao Railway Museum. It was tiny and I did not think much of it. The store next to it sells a variety of dry fruits.

A good but small selection of trains in years past. Out back there is a park with sculptures that will allow you to take plenty of photos to post on social media to make the family and friends jealous. Be sure to visit the restaurant/...More

It is free. Once you have finished visiting the Takao Railway Museum, you can hop over to Pier-2 which is just behind Takao Railway Museum. There you will find many art pieces e.g. paintings on buildings, sculptures etc... More
