    In memory of the Taiwan New Culture Movement


    This building, a Taipei Municipal Heritage, was originally constructed in 1933, during the Japan colonial era, as the Taipei Police Headquarter. It was designed and constructed by architects of the “Building and Repairs section at the Office of the Governor-General (臺灣總督府官房營繕課)”. So, you can see the layout of this building is similar to many official buildings which were constructed in the Japanese occupied period. For example, the Taiwan Education Association Building (currently the Memorial Foundation of 228). In January 1923, Dr. Jiang Weishui (蔣渭水), Mr. Tsai Peihuo (蔡培火) and others applied to the Japanese colonial government for the establishment of the Taiwanese Parliamentary Union (臺灣議會期成同盟會). In the following days, the police arrested Jiang and many others. They were detained here. So, this building has a historical place in the anti-Japanese movement during the Japanese ruling period. Jiang and Tsai were among the leaders of the Taiwan New Culture Movement. The Taiwan New Culture Movement refers to a group of Taiwanese intellectuals, thinkers and squires wished to use non-armed ways to counter the political and cultural suppression of the Japanese colonial government. Beginning with political and intellectual enlightenment, Taiwan’s New Cultural Movement also extended to the transformation of literature, art, music, drama, etc., hoping to break the colonial pressure and to reform the society. This museum exhibits the history of New Cultural Movement

    Where Taiwan's modern era began


    Taiwan's era of modern thought began near here, in the Japanese colonial period (1895-1945). Cultural literacy and a broad view of the world encouraged people to think for themselves. Cultural items and historical data will be on display in the Memorial Hall, which was once a Japanese police headquarters. By the way, a "Memorial Hall" is designed to preserve the life history of a prominent person or group.

    日據時代原為警察署,光復後改為警察局、、均以關政治犯、、文化人為主、、在警察局遷址後、台北市政府規劃設立為台灣新文化運動紀念館。 仍保留有原審訊、牢獄、水牢、、 為歷史見證。 也做為文化變遷時代轉換的相關展示場所。 佔地面積甚大應可好好規劃利用!
