"Art Site of Railway Warehouse of Hsin Chu City" is located in old Stock 3-5 next to the railroad. These warehouses built in 1940s had been abandoned due to the decrease in transportation needs and storage demands. These three warehouses are interconnected and spacious. They are divided into 4-8 individual studios (using partitions walls), galleries, and classrooms for artists to use. Workshops, researches, demonstrations, and exhibitions are always welcomed to here. Additional café and salon spaces also attract creative talents to come and interact with the likeminded and the general public. An outdoor garden is also a good place for artists to present their new works and performances.
