Heritage and Culture Education Center of Taipei (the historic Bopiliao area ) 臺北市鄉土教育中心(剝皮寮歷史街區)

Anchor point

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.

    Not worth your time


    Just 2 rows of shoplots with modern restorations. Went in 2 venues/studios. 1 had a display of ancient trading and tea processing but the staff could not speak any English to explain things. So you have to read the little description boards for each display. In the dim light, that proved quite a challenge. The other was a studio with some native art, masks and maps. Couldn't appreciate it as the staff on hand spoke no English. It may be ok just for a 10 minute walk through if you are in the vicinity. No more

    Beautiful and free


    We went on a rainy day so perhaps we didn’t see it in it’s best light. However, it meant it was lovely and quiet so you could spend your time looking at each building and reading the plaques without being rushed. You can enter all the buildings and read about it’s history. While we were there a couple were having their wedding photos taken on the street.

    Old treasured street.


    The ancient street is nearby the Longshan Temple and MRT Station of the same name. Thre street dates back to the 6th century and has been preserved by the current govement. If you are near the temple find this gem.

    The place is accessible via MTR. Bopiliao used to be a busy area during the ancient times. Good to take picture and to relax from the busy streets. With exhibits on the trading times years before.

    This ancient street in the Wanhua district dates back to the seventh century but was "frozen in time" after the Japanese occupation in WW2. It is quite a feeling to walk through this cobbled stone little street with several historical shops near the Longshan Temple. We enjoyed it.
