Like the Lockheed U-2 jet, the white steel roof of Chiang Ching-kuo Memorial Hall extends into the sky, in memory of the tremendous contribution of Chiang Ching-kuo, founder of Black Cat Squadron. The colonnade of 18 columns is a magnificent focal point on Provincial Highway 7. The former Daxi Armed Forces Activity Center was renovated in 2009. The first floor became Daxi Visitor Center, offering travel services to visitors. The second floor is an exhibition hall showcasing the artifacts of President Chiang Ching-kuo. The museum is only 140m away from Daxi Mausoleum. Visitors can learn more about him while paying respect.  

Inside the museum, real-time guidance and visitor services are offered at the information desk, as well as pamphlets in Chinese and other languages. Interactive kiosks are also available for visitors to look up information about dining and sightseeing in Taoyuan. The information on display about Lala Mountain, Xiao Wulai, Jiaobanshan, Cihu, and Daxi offers details about recommended spots, cultural features, and seasonal local produce, giving visitors some idea about the area.

Follow the stairs up, a themed exhibition, “Chiang Ching-kuo 100th anniversary memorial exhibition,” is on display. You can learn in detail about his family life, letter communication with his father, meeting Mother Teresa, interaction with civilian friends, and his contribution to Taiwan. On the other side, the uniform and photos of the Black Cat Squadron who played an important recon role during the Cold War are on display.

The Cadillac and Chevrolet on display on the right outside of the museum were ambulances for President Chiang Ching-kuo, and President Chiang Kai-shek, respectively. After the presidents passed away, these cars retired from their duty and became exhibits when the museum was built. After visiting the museum and learning about history, why not take a stroll at Touliao Ecological Trail and enjoy the lush green Caoling Creek.
