The museum also has recreational areas for visitors who wish to take a rest, where TV screens play anti-drug videos and booths offer the opportunity to have a photograph taken wearing a police uniform.

The museum opened in November last year after the concept was first conceived in early 2012, the museum said, adding that it took two years to assemble the documents and items around the nation and transport them to the museum.

Meanwhile, the Taipei City Fire Department has invited residents to try out its earthquake simulator.

The department has three simulators that can replicate the tremors created by earthquakes from magnitude 1 to 7, with videos explaining what to do in case of an earthquake.

The department said the simulators can be used by school tours as well.
