  • 展品虽然一般,不过可以当历史博物馆看。 有个女性主题的展馆有点意思而且比较有互动性。 其实这个馆最大的卖点是建筑本身,超级适合凹造型,很多台妹在这里摆拍哦。 夜景也有不同味道! 就在市中心,离火车站步行15分钟。离孔庙和度小月本铺很近,可以顺道一访 
  • Literature, using the ruined South Hall once. Inside the exhibit has been repaired beautifully, quietly like understand Taiwan's history and culture through literature. So those in the café in the come.

  • 在台南吃遍美食之後,推薦來台灣文學館走走,除了能幫助消化美食也能在台南的文藝中心稍作休息。每年來台南我都會來這裡走走感受靜謐的氣氛,這是我在其他都市都沒有看到重視文化的都市,各種作家的手稿,展覽每次都不一樣非常值得來參觀。

  • 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!
