  • Nice place to chill out in the heat. Some good stories of local history. But there's no way for foreigners to understand the exhibition.
  • Good place to know more history about taiwan. We had good time there.
  • Small but pretty good place for tourists go by to see the old photos of Kaohsiung city, to grasp the sense of change or development in Kaohsiung.
  • Great place. Learned a lot about the history of the building and the events that occurred there.
