The "The Vision of Kaohsiung Museum"， was the previous site of the former Kaohsiung Railway Station. The structure was Built in Imperial Crown style during Japanese Colonial rule. Operations began in 1941. It strongly reflects the era of Japanese military rule. It also features a Western foyer and a main hall， creating a fusion of Japanese and Western architecture. Japan's southward expansion was designed to better Kaohsiung's industrial development. The 2002 integration of railway， MRT and High Speed Railway all lead to this Imperial Crown style building. It will always serve as a testimony to the history of Kaohsiung. It was later converted into the Vision of Kaohsiung Museum， which exhibits Kaohsiung's past， present and future. Visitors to the museum will be able to revisit the old Kaohsiung railway station， and see blueprints for future developments.
