  • For Taiwan's Show visitors, this is a fascinating experience, and the historical artifacts are very rich, and. The card is also clear, suitable for 闔 family tour after visiting the Museum of Cultural Relics, but also to the backyard stroll hiking, green oil and oil grass, looking at the heart of the tired, do not know that has been released, This is one of the most recommended scenes.

  • The museum is far from the city, the transportation is inconvenient, the light food shop also does not have, only has the inside capacity. Often, it is more helpful to use a statue to enhance the audience's impression, especially to explain the construction of the wind.

  • The permanent exhibits (on the second floor) are excellent. For those who can't speak Chinese well they have a great audio tour in many different languages for a small fee.(you need to request it when you buy the tickets) The museum starts with artifacts from thousands of years ago and ends with Taiwan's high tech boom. Of particular interest to me were the Japanese colonial years and Taiwan's involvement in WWII. Great for history Buffs or anyone looking to learn more about this great country.
  • Great place to visit of you are in Tainan. I enjoyed my afternoon reading about Taiwan's history. The staff were friendly and the breastfeeding room was great when my little one needed to be fed.
  • This the best museum of Taiwanese history and it accurately and holistically represents the entirety of the island's populated history. More artifacts would add to the modern building's appeal, but on the whole it is very worth a half day visit to understand Taiwan's complex history.
  • Definitely worth a visit. It's amazing to see the history of this wonderful island come alive (well, almost).
  • Nice museum to know and understand the past, present and future of Taiwan. Sometimes offers special exhibitions as well. However, it is remote from downtown Tainan City and a little inconvenient by taking the bus, unless transporting by car or scooter.
