  • Free admission was on short distance from the hotel, so went with two friends before checking out. Liked the exhibit, history of Kaohsiung can be understood even by children. The building's and former Kaohsiung City Hall made Japan Business Japan during the colonial period. It is nice atmosphere of the Showa era. Things I stand in the entrance hall, souvenir shop, is not seen often, and bought 7.8 points alone, but only once a week. If a small 1 hour is enough, so is recommended.

  • If you like history, you will love this place, it is also next to the Love river with a good view and suitable for a leisure walk. This will be great to spend half a day.
  • It is a nice place to visit. Learn a lot about Taiwan history. Love it!
  • This museum has a lot of information about kaohsioung, the exhibits are ok and not a lot in English. There is a small library for reading books about the city or for study. The gift shop is nice and there is no entrance fee.
  • Nice displays, but only a little if the interpretative material is also in English.
  • Nothing much. You can finish the museum in less than 30min. Mainly abt the 228 incident
