The National Taiwan Museum is a paleontology exhibition center focusing on natural history， and located directly opposite the Taipei 2/28 Memorial Peace Park . The museum reuses the historic site of the Kangyo Bank， which was built during the Japanese Colonial Period. The museum's stone building has huge Roman colonnades in the exterior. The walls are made using the approach where the mortar joints are filled first. The cast iron windows use pulleys and movement weights for effort-saving up and down opening and closing， and embossed glass and hexagonal wire mesh is inserted in each window. Structural technology and workmanship are evident throughout this historic building. The three-story high lobby is decorated with plaster relief sculpture plates. A variety of paleontological specimens， large-scale dinosaur models and the specimen of elephant Lin Wang are displayed in the museum. In addition， exhibitions of the history， vault and architectural renovation of the Land Bank are permanently held in the museum.
