Introduction

The Heritage and Culture Education Center of Taipei is located in the historic Bopiliao area of Wanhua District near Longshan Temple. This area has preserved much of its Qing period roots, with arched brick arcades, carved pattern window lattices, and other traces of the city’s early elegance. Old-style shop-houses (with stores in front and living areas in back) also remain from that period, opening a window to the early development of the Bangka (Wanhua) area, lending a unique historical and architectural flavor to the area.

Visitors can learn more about the history of the area at the Heritage and Culture Education Center. The center has different theme displays and hosts special exhibits on Bopiliao as well as educational activities.

    Turning back time

    One can imagine turning back time to the old days when you look at the buildings. Unfortunately, it is a very short stretch of buildings so don't expect too much.

    A Stroll Into the Past

    2019-10

    This isn't a complete review, since we went there on Monday when the front side was closed. It's a little confusing because it has two sides: one fronting on Guangzhou Street, the other a walking street unto itself. The Guangzhou street side is mostly notable for the old brick construction, with some signs explaining the history of the spot where you are standing. It is an authentic historical street, related to the coal trade, dating back to the Qing Dynasty, but also including the Japanese colonial period, with preserved places, including a schoolroom, and a museum--and it's free. Another plus is its location: it's a short walk to the Longshan Temple and the Guangzhou Street Night Market.

    We came here 2 years ago and thought it was ok... nothing has changed. We stumbled upon it again and thought the same.

    Interesting enough if you are in the area

    2019-10

    We enjoyed some time wandering around the streets near the temple. and this had some good information, and some different architecture for the area. We also enjoyed the herbalist stalls in the nearby streets. I wouldn't come here just for this.

    Informative exhibits

    2019-10

    Bopiliao Old Street is an easy walk from the Longshan Temple MRT station. We spent a leisurely two hours strolling among the buildings and viewing the exhibits which were well done and interesting. Perhaps more explanations in English could have been given though. Although the street opens at 9 am, the exhibits in the airconditioned rooms only open around 11 am.
