The National Taiwan Museum has unveiled a newly-renovated historical railroad site in Taipei. The new Railway Department Park is located near the North Gate, in a building that housed the main railway offices during the Japanese occupation of Taiwan.
President Tsai Ing-wen was at the park’s opening on Monday, along with Transportation Minister Lin Chia-lung and Culture Minister Lee Yung-te. The president said the location is one of the starting points for Taiwan’s modern history, having witnessed the island’s development over the past 100 years. [FULL STORY]
