It used to be called the national history museum and now have changed the name to 2-28 Memorial Museum, which documented the 2-28 that took place on February 28, 1947 where Chiang Kai-Shek's army retreated to Taiwan from mainland China and chose to kill all educated Taiwanese at that time to gain control of the power. The museum was beautifully... More

This attraction may be one for aficionados of Taiwan's history, but it may be interesting all the same. On February 28, 1947 a riot broke out over a cigarette seller selling untaxed cigarettes. It soon turned into a full scale incident in which hundreds, possibly thousands, of Taiwanese were killed by the KMT forces. Just to clarify, the Taiwanese are... More

Include this as part of your visit to the Peace Park it is a museum located in a former radio station dedicated to the events and repercussions of the Feb 1947 massacre which turned Taiwan onto a democratic path. Sadly lacking a lot of English signage - there is an audio guide but that too could be improved. Got in... More

I never knew that there is such incident and this museum provides me with sufficient information. I got a free entrance on Saturday morning and thus I think everyone should grab a chance to visit this museum and understand how the Taiwanese people fought for justice and democracy years ago.

nothing special there, no need to waste time to purposely visit the place all the way from somewhere else and especially if you have limited time.

On the subject matters, this is the top museum to learn of the most painful history of the modern day Taiwan. Unfortunately the history was never been fully explored and people here often forgot their own history. Just today, Taiwanese government used violence to disperse peaceful protesters, mostly students from its office ground. It seems the history will repeat itself... More
