The development of industry had been more than a century in Kaohsiung and Kaohsiung was also where the labor movement started in Taiwan. After World War II, Kaohsiung was well known for heavy industries, ship-disassembling and export processing zones. So, the cultural heritage of industries and the labor culture was very plentiful in Kaohsiung. As time went by, these industries slowly vanished from the history of Taiwan due to the economic transformation. These historic contexts represented the bustling city in the early ages and showed how unique the labor culture was. In view of this, Labor Affairs Bureau of Kaohsiung City Government established a Museum of Labor that was a brand-new innovation in Taiwan. It kept the value of labor culture, builds a unique style of Kaohsiung City and shared the stories of labors with the whole country.
Why to establish Kaohsiung Museum of Labor？
The purpose is to gather, collect, research, conserve and maintain all kinds of subjects relative to the labor. By organizing creative& interactive exhibitions, seminars, programme activities and convenient services, the museum provide an environment for visitors to participate, interact, and learn. So as to strengthen our community consciousness and conserve labor culture.
