In 2001, the Taipei City Government named the tobacco factory the city’s 99th historic site and converted it into a park comprising city-designated historic sites (namely the office building, the 1st to 5th warehouses, cigarette plant and boiler room), historic structures (the inspection room, a machinery repair shed and a nursing room) and architectural highlights (the Baroque-style garden, an ecologically landscaped pond, a public bath and a multi-purpose auditorium). For more efficient reuse of space, the Songshan Cultural and Creative Park was built on the historic site as a production base for designers and cultural & creative businesses, as well as a venue for performances and exhibitions. The park introduced to its premises a Taiwan Design Museum and TMSK through partnerships with the Taiwan Design Center and prestigious Taiwanese glasswork label LIULI GONG FANG, respectively, besides a snack bar that was converted from the machinery repair shed.

Creative Art Space in an Old Tobacco FactoryThis is one of our favourite place to visit in Taipei. It has small local set ups that sells creative crafts, such as the bubble tea holders. We love how the washrooms are clean and there is a water dispenser (with hot water option) outside it. There is also an Eslite Bookshop plus departmental store nearby, filled with restaurants and food court! Do check this place out!
One one shop open when I wentAfter reading the other reviews I wonder if I took a wrong turn somewhere. I entered through some very nice gardens and eventually found an excellent but expensive design shop with very creative and unique items. Next door was a cafe. Everywhere else seemed to be closed or not yet open. I was disappointed, so walked to the Sun Yat Sen Memorial Hall which was not far away.

Went TwiceThe exhibition halls and shops were an old Tobacco factory, there is a design museum entry fee is $150, a very good café I had the best every mushroom Quiche all mushroom and very little egg, with very good pastry. Next door is the Design shop with a great range of items some very simple, like a wooden triangle to put your eyes glasses on. To a leather hand bag make from one piece of leather, that you buy flat and make up yourself, also tee shirts made from Fish scales. Plus lot of little stalls and also a high-rise building that has 3 floors of shopping. Loved the 3D back packs from Jump from paper.
Hidden gemI dropped my kids at the nearby BabyBoss at Living Mall (with hubby) and dropped my elderly parents at Songshan Park which is a 10-min walk away. There is a Taiwan design museum with a nice cafe and shop. After that we went to Eslite Spectrum which is still in the same area, where we did some shopping. The sales staff recommended we eat at 春水 restaurant which was where the locals go. Great food reasonable prices. The su dong po rou is a pork dish that was cooked to perfection ! The bubble milk tea was also light and fragrant 👍👍

Nice place to hang out with lots of craft and designAs titled, nice place to walk around with lots of craft and design. There is a flea market, a shop/cafe, and Eslite Spectrum in this area. A design postcard caught my attention at that time, I didn't buy at the visit, but just took a photo. Afterwards I regret so I contacted the Park. I didn't know which shop exactly was it. But the staff helpfully referred me to various contact, and finally I was able to buy it online! I am impressed by this kind of helpfulness.
