In October 2010, the station was managed by the Bureau of Culture Affairs of Kaohsiung City Government and transformed into the Takao Railway Museum that keeps and displays the prosperous atmosphere of railway transport during the 1960s and 1970s and provides visitors with time-space experience. The museum recreates Taiwan's largest cargo terminal; and on the aspects of preserving, demonstrating, and promoting the railway culture, the abandoned old train station was kept and transformed by the professional techniques into a museum; based on the reality display and research orientation, an unprecedented new interpretation of railway museum and arts museum in Taiwan, the museum presents the most prosperous atmosphere of the Taiwan railway cargo transport during the 1960s and the 1970s. Besides the exhibition area, there's an innovative railway reference room, which displays paper and book information provided by railway researchers, including the "Railway Bulletin " which provides complete 1st-hand research information starting from 1951 until now. It's hoped that the small reference room will become significant in the research of Taiwan's railway culture.
