    National Human Rights Museum – White Terror Memorial Park

    Due to the offshore location, Green Island was a place where political prisoners were held in captivity during a politically sensitive time. Prisoners then were sent to the Oasis Villa and New Life Correction Center for labor and thought transformation. Though slightly gloomy for the historical background, the museum and memorial park are great places for learning about a past era in Taiwan.
