In 1979, the Executive Yuan announced The Twelve Construction Projects in which construction of new museums was listed as one of the central cultural facilities.
In March of 1984, the Executive Yuan approved the formation of the Construction Preparatory Team for the National Science and Technology Museum. In August the team visited museums in Europe, Japan and America to adopt experiences for building a science museum in Kaohsiung.
In July of 1986, the Planning Council for the National Science and Technology Museum was set up to oversee the planning of museum construction.
In 1987, TMA Architects and Associates was selected to design and supervise the construction work.
  * In November of 1988, the Executive Yuan approved the construction plan.
  * In October of 1989, the structural construction of museum's main building was started.
By 1992, the engineering construction for air regulation, utility facilities, building furnishing (Phase l ), elevators, computer facilities , building furnishing (Phase ll ), education center, landscape and exhibitions had been started. The construction took 7 years.
  * On July 26, 1997 the technology education Center was opened.
  * On September 21, 1997 the museum park was opened.

However, seeking material development is just one of the many tasks in the entire process. Besides, excessive pursuance of material development will also limit the objective goals of the country.
* Significance

The museum shows the theory and application of technology that fit the local industry needs. Other than reciprocate each other. Culture and educational spirit may also be penetrated into the industrialized communities.

* Architecture

It adopted intelligent information equipment for scientific management and for the demonstration effect. The ice-storage air-conditioning system disperses the peak power consumption hours by making the ice at night and saving it for the day.
