Museum combines architecture with exhibits
Apr 2021
Nanmen Park is attached to the National Taiwan Museum. The museum combines period architecture with exhibits, dating from the Japanese colonial era (1895-1945). Opium and camphor were important products processed in this factory. The Museum is part of a program to reuse historic artefacts and buildings.

Relics from a different era
Nov 2020
Taiwan was a Japanese colony from 1895 to 1945. Its economy was very different from today. Taiwan's main industries were camphor and opium production. The main source of government revenues were taxes on tobacco products. This small museum serves as a museum preserving the industrial archaeology of the Japanese colonial era. It is quite small, but will interest observers with an interest in Taiwan's economic history.

Nanmen Park of Taiwan Museum : Historical Camphor and Opium Factory
Sep 2015 • Friends
Including historic sites, a depository and gardens, the park highlights Taiwan industrial history with exhibits on camphor-processing and modern industry.
The factory is set in what had served during Japanese colonization as the Taipei Nanmen Factory under the Monopoly Bureau of the Taiwan Viceroy’s Office. This complex was constructed in 1899.and originally extended to 5.6ha. This enormous factory was built to process camphor and opium. After its closure in 1967, the land was subdivided, and the majority of factory buildings torn down, except 2 warehouses, which have been named National Historic Sites. As the exteriors of these buildings are, respectively, of red brick and an off-white Qilian stone and sandstone mix, they have been given the nicknames “the Red House” and “the White Palace.” They stand as an important witness to the existence of the factory complex, and will be given new life as the exhibition halls of Nanmen Park.
