    No.4, Linsen W. Rd., East Dist., Chiayi City 600, Taiwan (R.O.C.)

During the Japanese Colonial Era, Alishan was one of the three largest forest areas in Taiwan, and for the past few years, the management has been bringing energy to the first fossil-fuel power station in Chiayi. Established in 1913, this power station is no longer in operation and currently known as the Motive Power Room Wood Sculpture Museum, recognized as a historic site at the city level in 2002.

The exhibition hall on the first floor houses a collection of wood carvings with intricate details and imposing features. On the second floor, you will find some original machines used for power generation and are part of the exhibition into the local industry. As the timber industry began to decline, the museum was set up as a reminder of the thriving history of the local industry, meanwhile playing a role in the cultural development of Chiayi.
