The exclusive exhibition seems like the time machine that leads the visitors back to the start of Taiwan. So they can understand when the indispensable traveling in the modern life has started and how it evolved.

The exclusive exhibition tells that in 1908 the railway that travel all over Taiwan started, kicking off the tourism industry in Taiwan. After Prince Hirohito’s tour in Taiwan in 1923 and the election activity of the “Top 8 attractions in Taiwan” of 1927, the tourism started to become popular. The “40 anniversary of Taiwan under the governance of Japan Expo” has opened the era of tourism, when it reached the peak time.

The head of the Kaohsiung Museum of History Yang Xianfei says the exclusive exhibition has not only reviewed the old Kaohsiung in 1930, but also it hopes to give visitors the opportunity to observe the new Kaohsiung now and experience the beauty and the change of the local culture.
