  • Very convenient located away from MRT West Bay Station Exit 2, please feel free to. Admission is free! Once the depot of Kaohsiung Harbor station was. SL locomotive and other exhibits. And a large surprise. And 2 km long Park and then followed. There were people enjoying the kite. Reproduce the old station building, stationmaster's Office inside the Museum, there was lots of photos and documents. And have about 15 different commemorative stamps. Keep to 1 not stamp rally.

  • Free but probably not worth your time
  • It is connected to Metro station, easy to reach and you can see a big space and relaxing atmosphere. Bring your kids to here to enjoy a wonderful afternoon..... or ride your bike here, it is very well planned and organized infras.
  • Commercialised place. Nearbt park is fantastic.
  • Great way to turn an old train station terminal into an environmental, family oriented park.
  • Don't bother, not worth the visit. Got out in 5 mins as it was only 2 rooms , with old tickets and train conductor uniforms.
