Established in 1957, the Academia Historica is the top-level organization in charge of recording national history. This institution purchases, catalogues, assembles, edits, exhibits, and preserves historic documents, as well as conducting extensive research. In 2010, the organization was relocated to the Presidential & Vice Presidential Artifacts Museum (The former Communication Bureau building during Japanese rule, and today a city designated historic site) where artifacts related to the President and Vice President are on permanent display. The archives of Academia Historica are made available to the public and seminars and exhibitions related to the collection are planned for the future. Programs encouraging the public to write their recollections will also be organized to create a comprehensive history of this nation.
