  • The museum offers interesting topics about taiwanese culture and the entrance is free. Also they have interactive stations which is also exciting for non mandarin speakers 
  • In is in literature, free of charge. Just to enter the building and wondering if there is worth a visit. Literary exhibition, exhibition content itself was kinda hard to care.

  • Turn on the free of charge. Special exhibitions, special exhibition exchange letters that had been just went up. It was a very impressive exhibition. Stop by every time I go to Tainan, but always in a quiet, calm down. When you are working with air conditioning, so tired of walking breaks partly stopover is recommended.

  • Despite it being a museum of Taiwanese literature, it's certainly worth a visit for English speakers. Most displays offer a bilingual description of the fascinating history behind the various stories and types of literature. The entire building is also a really cool visit to see the architecture. Many sections of the modern restorations are cut away so that a visitor may view into the history of the building. If you're looking for a place to write or read, directly across from the gift store are a series of tables. After visiting all of thee exhibits one can't help but be urged to reflect, and this area was perfect for it. Many people were also there, students studying and writing, all in complete silence. It was almost a magical experience writing there. Certainly worth the trip alone if you're a writer. Overall, it's great stop in an area not usually famed for its tourist destinations, and it's close to so many other great attractions so you can easily make a full and worthwhile day around the area.
  • I think now it is called 国立文学博物馆. It is a small museum introducing Taiwan literature. If you are interested in Taiwan's history, I highly recommend you to go there to understand Taiwan from the perspective of literature. Many books from the original residents tell different version of Taiwan history. Very interesting to read them.
  • Beautiful building with a mix of ancient and modern architecture
  • 現在是台灣文學館。
  • Went up to 11/27/2016 units, up literary exhibition, also of Japan. Beautiful both outside and inside buildings is good to go. Admission is free.
