Photo Essay: Formosa Plastics Museum, Taoyuan

Description

The Formosa Plastics  museum is located on the grounds of Chang Gung Formosa Plastics University, near Taipei. Chang Gung University grew out of a hospital set up by Formosa in 1976 “to make a meaningful contribution to Taiwan’s society.” Today, the university uses “the successful management model of Formosa Plastics Corporation and its resources” to build students’ management knowledge (https://www.cgu.edu.tw/p/404-1000- 17343.php?Lang=en).

The Formosa Plastics Museum has six floors, with exhibits celebrating the founder and spirit of the Formosa Plastics Group (complete with dioramas and wax figures) and a miniature replica of Formosa’s 6th Sixth Naphtha Cracking Plant. The fifth floor has an Earth Conservation Theatre. The sixth floor conveys how Formosa has given back to society through investment in education, hospitals, and cultural heritage projects.
