Reinstatement of the Museum in Taipei
In 1960, the government started planning a new museum in the Taipei suburb of Waishuangxi as a way to promote culture and tourism. Construction on the new museum started in June 1962 and was completed in August 1965. The government then moved to reinstate the National Palace Museum, incorporating the Preparatory Office of the National Central Museum and its collection. The new Museum in Taipei was inaugurated on November 12, 1965. Transportation of the artifacts stored in Beigou began that December and was completed in March the following year. The National Palace Museum then handed over the Beigou storehouses and the gallery to the Taiwan Provincial Government, while the offices and dormitories occupied by the Joint Administrative Office were given to the Taichung Sugar Mill.
