National Radio Museum
National Radio Museum (74, Minquan Rd., Liaoding Village, Minxiong Township, Chiayi County) – located one hour (76 km) north of Tainan City, this unique museum immerses visitors in the world of radio broadcasting. Built during the Japanese occupation period in 1938, this site originally existed to inhibit Taiwanese from receiving radio broadcasts from Nanjing. In 1999, it was transformed into the National Radio Museum and opened to the public to reveal the secrets of the national radio station.
It’s currently divided into three areas: Transparent Broadcast Room: Open for live public broadcasting practice, where visitors can experience the fun of broadcasting; Live Antique Transmitter Room: The world’s only live antique transmitter allows visitors to see what it’s like to operate a broadcasting company; and Special Exhibition Room: Special exhibitions include topics such as broadcasting equipment and instruments.
Admission: NT$20 (general). Hours: 9:00 am – 11:00 am; 1:30 pm – 4:00 pm (Tuesday – Friday) (weekends by appointment) (closed on Mondays).
