  • 深入瞭解高雄過去的歷史,包括二二八事件。覺得這裡的展示都很棒,但是大部分都是中文,如果有外國觀光客來可能不太懂怎麼一回事。二樓展示的二二八事件歷史有英文可看,而且有模型。  more »
  • Lovely renovated old town hall in the Japanese colonial period, and the Museum of marble is 228 incident article seems permanent. Video exhibition at the time with diorama how tragedy occurred. Very permanent exhibition of period (next 1/5 ~) also there.

  • Learned that unfortunate history not thinkable from the Kaohsiung City's current prosperity. It seems when Japan ruled was used as the Kaohsiung City Hall building. We recommend that you visit the 228 incident of heavy air, but when you come to Kaohsiung City.

  • 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.
  • From arts, arms, musical instrument, and history
