  • The violin collection and the exhibition are featured. A large hall of weapons exhibition is very interesting, recording the weapons of the Western times. Like watching and sculpture also has a lot of exhibits, I attended the day, happened to meet Qi Mei Creative Kang 儷 also come to see oil painting. Advice to rent a 覧 machine, you can have a deeper understanding of the exhibits! And take the park guide, which is recommended!

  • This museum is totally beyond my expectation. The collection is so rich that it could take a full day to visit. Besides, the outside garden occupies a huge land and it is beautiful. We spent three hours inside and could not finish all. Definitely, we will visit again. The only downside is it is a western style museum located in the countryside of Taiwan, a little bit strange.
  • The museum collects a lot of Western art, musical instrumentals, arms and armpit, animal taxidermy. Incredible design and amazing creative ideas can be found in this museum. I was amazed the way that they demonstrate and introduce Orchestra and musical instrumentals. I also enjoyed the area of animal taxidermy. Those animal taxidermy looks real and nature. I believe the museum took a lot of efforts to built it and maintain it. It really a good place that you must visit, if you are in Tainan. Something need to be notified. No photo shooting and drinking & eating in the museum. Not much food can be found in the museum. But you can go out of museum for food. Then back to museum.
  • A fantastic museum reachable from both Tainan and Kaohsiung. The museum has some cool armor collections and an incredible violin collection. Outside the museum there is also a lovely park to walk around in. A must visit if you are in the area!
  • The private owned museum is near the airport in Tinan. From the outside you could see the European style bridge and fountains. The owner has a huge private collection of paintings and musical instruments. The automatic musical instrument show is worth visiting. However the restaurants is a bit expensive. During sunset and dawn it is a great place for photos.
  • Definitely a must visit if you are in Taiwan. World class collections of music instruments, armories and arts. It was a pleasant surprise to see all their collections. Too bad I didn't schedule sufficient time. Must return.

Where to stay in Tainan

The long established city of Tainan offers plentiful accommodations for the range of visitors it receives each year. Primarily located to the west of the main train station, hotels range from the luxurious to the basic, and everywhere in between. Overlooking green areas or the canals, the most glamorous among the options here come in old and new buildings, while the more budget-friendly--including youth hostels, guesthouses, and simple hotels--occupy side streets close to the main transport hubs and historic buildings.
