Jingtong Mining Industry Museum

About the Museum

The Jingtong Mining Industry Museum, which stands next to Jingtong Station, officially opened on January 27, 2005. The first floor of the museum houses a permanent exhibition dedicated to natural and cultural landscapes of Pingxi Township, such as sky lanterns, coalmines, the railway, a waterfall, and the “giant’s kettle”. The exhibition also introduces visitors to mining development in the area and describes how the industry has changed. The second floor is for special exhibitions, including:
(1) The Exhibition Hall of Coalmine Artefacts, which displays artefacts used in early coalmines in Pingxi and models of the nearby Shidi Slope Mine, Taiyang Club and coal preparation plant;
(2) Local Culture: exhibitions relating to festivals and the time of the year, e.g. “the Pingxi railway legend”, “the multi-faceted Keelung River”, and “early ecology of Pingxi”, and “the dialogue between sky lanterns and fireflies”.


A gift shop (first floor) and a multimedia room (second floor) are located in the side wing of the museum. The gift shop sells many special items with local culture flavor, miniature sky lanterns (made of fabric or paper, or glow in the dark), woven bamboo products and indigo dye.


Located next to Jingtong Station, the building that houses the museum was once a for Taiwan Railway Administration employee dormitory. The surrounding areas were overgrown.


In 2001, Interior Ministry funding was made available to improve the environment surrounding Jingtong Old Street and to repair the dilapidated dormitory. The disused dormitory was recommissioned, and by the time the museum opened several exhibitions had been held to coincide with the annual sky lantern festival.


In 2002, the museum was designated a Local Culture Museum for the township and was officially named the Jingtong Mining Industry Museum. In 2003, the Ministry of Culture provided a subsidy of NT$2 million for the museum to make further improvements (including fire protection solutions, disabled access and an application for a building occupation permit). The museum received further subsidies of NT$2.3 million and NT$1 million in 2004 to improve the surrounding environment, hold local culture events and promote collection and research. The museum completed all tasks on schedule and officially opened on January 27, 2005, since when it has welcomed around 10,000 visitors each month, which shows its popularity.
