  • Large museum in Tainan, so spacious! The sign made of solar panels is very striking! Many people come for photos! It has become a landmark of the city. It gets a wide lawn around the building, which serves as a public area for visitors to play and rest. Parking is convenient here. The museum's route is well designed, and it is an enjoyment to see exhibition inside the air-conditioned chambers!
  • Friendly place for kids! Foreigners friendly also, they offer audio in English to guide foreigners. Group and individual visitors are available! You can also find yummy ice cream in front of the museum entrance, enjoy the ice cream after visiting the museum and then walking around at the park until sunset. Awesome!
  • Transportation wise was harder as only several buses came up this way. We ended up grabbing a taxi to go back into Tainan. The museum has two levels and a lot of history. If one has a ton of time, I recommend getting the audio guide. Self-exploration would be just as amazing as there is so much to learn and see.
  • Very interesting museum about Taiwan and it's history. Great for kids as there are a lot of interactive exhibits and a train ride through time! It's also a good introduction for foreigners. It's a bit of a drive from Tainan, but it's worth it. Plan to spend at least 1 hour here.
  • It's large and beautiful..It showcases tradition and history in a lively way ... Attracting attention of tourist ...And it's exciting to know the history of Taiwan as it covers all the man Events briefly and deeply
