  • It is occasionally seen in Japan, such as Tokyo, Japan colonial building in red brick building. Therefore, somewhat nostalgic or I feel excellent. You can see a big roundabout in front of the building, away from.

  • 日式建築的台灣文學館,在2016年剛好滿百年,以前是台南市政府所在地,很值得將您的行程排入!附近還有林百貨、度小月擔仔麵! 
  • It is always to see a Japanese Museum. Detailed analysis about the history of Japan and Taiwan, related article displayed the chest now full in excitement. However, very unfortunately not almost touched in Japan Guide. This is the spot to Tainan from Kaohsiung-iron self strength of 30 minutes or so close, so old ruins stand South and match by all means look.

  • 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!
