Since 2011 artists, creators and visionaries have gathered at Songshan Cultural and Creative Park—an old renovated tobacco factory—to showcase work, engage in arts education and inspire industry insiders.
Travelers can wander the grounds, which include five old warehouses, a design museum and lab, a restaurant, garden and ecological pond. Public maps point visitors in the direction of popular shops, like the Liuligongfang glass store, as well as exhibit halls showcasing contemporary art, handmade designs and other local goods often available for purchase.
Indoor park areas are open from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m. daily. The outdoor park areas are open from 8 a.m. until 10 p.m. daily. It is accessible via the metro using the Blue line to Sun Yat-Sen Memorial Hall (Exit 5) or Taipei City Hall (Exit 1) stations. Entrance is free but exhibits and performances may cost extra.
