Takao Railway Museum + Hamasen Railway Cultural Park + The Pier-2 Art Center

After spending the morning in Cijin Island, we took the ferry back, had lunch and headed towards Takao Railway Museum (打狗鐵道故事館), located near Sizihwan (西子灣) metro station.

Old trains which visitors are not allowed to climb onto

Just beside Takao Railway Museum is the Hamasen Railway Cultural Park (哈瑪星鐵道文化園區). On the day we visited, there was a group of graduates taking photos in their graduation gown in this area... reminds me of my younger days so many years ago.

Fancy a ride on this mini train?

These Labor and Fishwoman 「工人及漁婦」art pieces are found around The Pier-2 Art Center (駁二藝術特區). They are symbols of the important industrial and maritime workforce of Kaohsiung.
