  • I visited it twice before, and looked down from the upper room of the Grand Hospital in the side of Taiwan, regardless of the angle, the Taipei Museum is a very human-looking history building. It is usually guided by the Ministry of Justice, to see the interior and then to look at the outside garden landscaping and pond Dark goose ' daytime goose, there will be a wonderful feeling: Although the time is flowing silently, history has never been forgotten, at least here.

  • A very high level restaurant in Taipei, a large direct area in the Taiwan City of Asia, although I did not have the money to live to see, but I think his evening light is very beautiful plus nearby very good stroll, very worth a go!

  • It's worth taking a look at history and taking pictures for free at the beginning of the month. It is only raining today, even if there are not many people, but slightly affect the mood, feel the dead atmosphere of the building. Fortunately, volunteers are patient introductions.

  • Really interesting place, it is good for sketching, drawing. The European vibe is all around the place. It is said to be the first European garden with pond shaped as (心) in Taiwan. You can take pictures, but with no blitz. There is historian movie shown every 30 minutes. The place is one way, so if you want to see the movie, do not ever to come out from the building before finishing the movie. There are black swans in the pond.
  • Contrary to what we read online, we were able to visit the inside of the building. It is only partly furnished but you still get an idea of what the rooms' purpose was, and some of the guards try to explain in a few words in English. There is no signage in English .the park is pretty too, although some areas are out of bound .the building gives a good idea of the contributions the Japanese made in terms of architecture.
  • Interesting history from the royal family during Japanese colonial era and high-level government officers in ROC.
  • Open to public only once a month, with guided tours available. It has been around for almost 120 years with lots of history. Personally, I was more interested in its architecture and the garden. Great place to spend a few hours!
  • Good place with history!
