The Kaohsiung Museum of Labor (Chinese: 高雄市勞工博物館; pinyin: Gāoxióngshì Láogōng Bówùguǎn) is a museum about labor in Cianjin District, Kaohsiung, Taiwan.


Former Kaohsiung Museum of Labor in Pier-2 Art Center.

The museum was originally officially opened in conjunction with the International Workers' Day on 1 May 2010 in Pier-2 Art Center. However, the soft opening was earlier, on 26 December 2009.[1] In 2015, the museum was relocated from Yancheng to Cianjin District and was reopened on 25 July the same year. During the opening ceremony, various events and displays were held, such as retro marketplace and storytelling.[2]


The museum features the evolution of the labor force in the city, Taiwan's labor movement and the recent animation, comics and video games sectors.[3]


The museum is accessible within walking distance west from City Council Station of the Kaohsiung MRT.[4]
