I really appreciated the opportunity to intern for two months at Kaohsiung Museum of History(KHM) in Taiwan. The museum is not only a museum but also a historical site. The museum was City Hall when the Japanese Government occupied Taiwan. It was built by Japan in 1938. After WWII and the retrocession of Taiwan, when Taiwan became independent from the Japanese, City Hall became the Kaohsiung Municipal Government office by the new regime. Although the regime changed, the purpose of the place was still for government. However, it is not always easy and peaceful when the regime changes. In 1947, the 228 Incident took place and around 60 people were killed in the building. As a result, this place has become historically significant. Until 1992, the municipal government decided to move to a new place. But because of its architectural and historcal importance related to the development of Kaohsiung. The government decided to transform City Hall into a museum. And the museum is dedicated to preserving and expanding the historical culture of Kaohsiung.
