Today's museum was built in 1913 to commemorate the remarkable achievements of the fourth colonial governor in Taiwan Kodama Gentaro. The building, designed by Nomura Ichiro and Arkai Eiichi, is located on the site where the Matsu Temple once stood.

The main hall is covered by a great dome, and the interiors are finished with marble. Symmetrical wings serve as display halls. The museum's collection include a large number of specimens of Taiwan's indigenous flora and fauna as well as various cultural artifacts. Take note, the ticket can be used to visit Taiwan Land Bank Exhibition Hall, which is located nearby.
