  • 免費參觀,冷氣很涼快,建築物裡面外面拍照起來都很好看,似乎本身就是古蹟,值得一訪,展出的文學值得一看,推薦有時間可以來走走!  more »
  • 臺灣經過史前、荷西時期、明鄭、清治時期、日治時期、到二戰後至今,累積多元豐富的文學作品。為推廣臺灣文學資產而成立的臺灣文學館是國內第一座以文學為主軸的博物館。建物為原台南州廳,在美麗且保持完整的古蹟裡欣賞各時期的文學作品是種享受。  more »

  • 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.
  • Kinda freat place to visit... surrounded by some other hiatorixal buildings, in add, you can go bu biking or even walkin
  • Modern museum in a historical building. Interesting, bilingual (most of them) exhibitions and putting an effort to encourage children to read more - they had a special reading room for children and interactive exhibition for them. There is also cafe in the building. Free entrance.
  • 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.
  • Very fancy. If not for the literature then the interior of the museum is very interesting!
