Ever since the establishment of the Taipei Machinery at the northwest of the Taipei City in Qing Dynasty, the Beimen (North Gate) area has become the inception of locomotive maintenance, manufacture of ammunition, money foundry, and trails and rail sleepers. It connected the Dadaocheng Ticketing Booth of the first generation Taipei Train Station, with the north stretching towards Keelung and the southbound for Hsinchu, it was the rising fortress of traffic in Taiwan.

National Taiwan Museum Railway Department historic sites act as an important hub for the north-south connection of art and cultural venues, namely, the other historic sites in Taiwan Museum System Plan including the Main Building, Land Bank Exhibition Hall and Nanmen Park. The Museum aims to build up the urban culture that respects both the past and the future and to make Taipei an iridescent cultural creative spot.
