  • Glass Museum of Hsinchu City

Establishment Purpose

  • Built on June 25 and completed on December 25 in 1936, the Glass Museum of Hsinchu City sitting northwest of the Hsinchu Park was originally used as an assembly hall, reception hall, and guesthouse. It was the guesthouse of the Tenno, royal family, and senior officials during Japanese colonization. As time goes by, history has changed, and so has the museum’s role. In 1945, it became the residence of the Nationalist Government Committee. In 1999, it was reconstructed into the Glass Museum of Hsinchu City.

Department Introduction
