Wednesday: 09:00 – 17:00




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.

    Informative exhibits


    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.

    Ok for a quick look


    I walked through this ancient narrow street today. Yeah it's worth a look and there is a bit of info written on walls and some shops and etc to look at.

    Interesting place


    Once you find the street, ensure you go through one of the buildings to the small street between the brick buildings. Very scenic, a few interesting things in some of the buildings.

    Sunday surprise


    As we were wandering the narrow streets we heard very catchy music, and happened upon a street party with a band and the band members and observers singing and dancing together -- and all of this in 91-F heat and high humidity! What a fun, lively area . . . at least when the band is in action.

    Quite a small area with few blocks of ancient buildings. We took about 20 mins to finish walking around and taking pictures. Not bad!
