Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

It is a kind of museum about railway. Old facilities which are related to Hualien station were gathered and restored to display. The entrance is free. Even if you are not a railway lover, I think its displays are quite interesting.

Historical visit. Remains of the East Coast Line railway built by the Japanese to connect east coast of Taiwan to the northern cities during their occupation of Taiwan.

Nothing to note except its historical value. We could have skipped this stop to concentrate elsewhere.

While much of the tiny museum is written only in Chinese, there's enough English to inform the viewer what it is they are looking at. Plus, there are plenty of physical props that anyone can enjoy who loves trains like we do. Hualien served for many years in the 20th century as a rail hub -- as far as administration, signaling, etc. Nice to see where people worked, relaxed, and got a sense of the city's past. Free as everyone else has noted in these reviews. Clean, nice bathrooms available, too, if you do some hunting.

This small museum is located near the Dongdamen Night Market. You could probably spend less than 1 hour seeing/reading everything. The signage is also in English. The grounds are nice to walk around and interesting to wander around if you enjoy railway history.

So it's a very small area and it's not super exciting. Yes, there are some old buildings, but that's ... kind of it. The cafe looked cute but we weren't enticed to sit there, seeing as we were also the only people there! Granted it was mid-week in the low season, but still :P

easy to find and quite interesting due to locomotive exhibits and items like Chinese typewriters and surveying gear.

While I was most impressed with the quality of the restoration, I was somewhat disappointed by the fact that there is little cultural significance aside from a few information boards telling what each structure was used for. Now, it seems like an artist's cooperative and I felt as if I was intruding on their 'personal space.'

The first thing you see is the criss-crossing railway tracks and an ancient locomotive. Looking inside the Eastern Line ruins, you can learn about the original names of counties and cities, as well as the current names after reconstruction. It is an antique place suitable for leisure outings. , you can also see the utensils used at that time. It must be how difficult and difficult it was for humanistic development in the back mountains of Hualien at that time.
