Drink up a bit of Taipei's past at this museum housed in a historic pumping station. The station is located by the Xindian River off Siyuan Street near one of the city's water sources. The Baroque-style facility was built in 1908 and some of the original equipment remains on display inside. The station was designated as a national grade-three historic site, and it was reopened as a museum in April 2000. Apart from its educational value, the museum provides a classical backdrop that has been featured in many local TV ads. It is also a favorite site for bridal photographs.
