The Railway Pavilion was an old warehouse of 82 years of history owned by Taiwan Railways. It is now a recognized historical site. The unique architecture style is half Japanese, and half Western. After renovation, the Railway Pavilion was set up to showcase the development and vision of the underground railway and MRT system On the first floor of the Railway Pavilion there are the history section, technology section, vision section, and interactive multimedia section. On the second floor,  there is the transportation library. You will also find the first open display of an actual “shield machine” in the outdoor area. Visitors can learn about the trajectory of development of Taoyuan Railways from the past, to present, and to the future through various exhibits. 
The Railway Pavilion covers an area of 1,735m2, with the main building taking about 722m2. Information about the early push car railways in Taoyuan can be found here. For example, the Dakekan Push Car Railway Company built the track from Boai Road to Daxi via Jieshou Road in Taoyuan. The present MRT Brown line used to be the push car railway from Taoyuan to Xinzhuang. There are also displays of the historical railway system of Taiwan. A scaled-down wooden model of the old Taoyuan Station was recreated from old photos, showcasing its elegant and delicate appearance. There are also the train conductor experience, city of building blocks, railway theater, and interactive experiences where visitors can take the Taoyuan mini train, view the 6 future railway lines, and learn all about railway transportation in Taoyuan.
