Sio House (Salt Museum), Tainan

(70+ reviews on the web)
Specialty Museum Museum
The century-old building of Sio House (Salt Museum) offers visitors a bit of cultural history and some cleverly designed salt-based exhibits and activities. Once used for storage, selling, and inspection of salt, the site now provides a spot to get some souvenirs for yourself or your loved ones. It displays salt in 365 different colors, one for each day of the year, with a short blessing tagged on it. Don't miss the wishing tree, where couples write down their blessings and tie them to it. If you're traveling with kids, check out the sandpit near the car park. Put Sio House (Salt Museum) on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Tainan vacation builder.
