This building used to be administrative office of Kagi Shrine. You can only see ruins of this shrine, because the main body was burned down by accidental fire in 1994. 
The Historical Relic Museum building was renovated before opening to public in 2001. The original beauty was restored by using Japanese-style stone lanterns, walls made of wooden planks and black tiled roof. The area became a part of Chiayi park.
