(2.3/5 based on 10+ reviews on the web)
The Taiwan Coal Mine Museum is a museum about coal mining in Pingxi District, New Taipei City, Taiwan.HistoryThe museum used to be the coal mining site during the later stage of Pingxi Era of Tai-Yiang Mining Inc called the New Pingxi Mine. It was first opened in 1965 and the first coal extracted was done in 1967. In 1997, the mining activity was halted due to the more competitive price from imported coal to Taiwan. With the help from railway enthusiasts and other associates that cared about the coal mining industry, Mr. Gong Yung-tsang began to create buildings in this historical site and created the museum in 2001 with the storing ground became the museum entrance.After decades of mining, the site produced tons of abandoned overburden rocks which created a 140 meters high rock mountain. Due to the lack of vegetation growth to grasp firm holds of the gravel, the side of the rock mountain tumbled in July 2005, which created The Abandoned Rock Mountain.Exhibitions Mine locomotive Large-scale mining machinery Small-scale exhibition hall Simulated pitTransportationThe museum is accessible within walking distance northeast from Shifen Station of the Taiwan Railway Administration Pingxi Line.

  • 10 get in the Office, walk to waterfalls, located square in about 10 minutes. So if you buy tickets to the Museum courtesy car to come from is had. Walking seems to be able to go, but on a steep slope and seems quite slow. Preserved and can ride a trolley in popularity, tourists from Japan almost intended this for that. Japan language spoken for I was originally interested in mine and coal mine owner, happy to hear Mr. full story. Especially Japan mines packed even more familiar was interesting, such as the difference between the two countries. You could bring back memories of the best showing until the private treasure. Was because, of course, I met Mr. got lucky in that we pick up at 200 Yuan. I think it is worth while listening to the nostalgic sound truck to ride alone, enough. Bad reputation in Western Europe people, communication problems and.... In a mine unfortunately without restriction, it can at the time. Currently, honko openness towards owner tenacious negotiating Hall and Mr. The owner then his wish, then take a look at rushed to want to.
