Kaohsiung Museum of History
Kaohsiung Museum of History was founded in 1998 and proclaimed the first municipal museum dedicated to urban history. The Japanese Imperial Crown style architecture was built in 1939 and painted a light green for protection against air attacks during WWII. A central tower and two smaller towers placed symmetrically on each side presents a stately air and dignified presence.
The building was originally Kaohsiung’s City Hall under Japanese rule and was later used as office space for the city government in 1992. It was part of the Japanese urban development, standing testament to the city’s history and recognized as a municipal heritage site in 2004.
