  • In the exhibition gallery next to the elevated bridge, the outside is very special and beautiful, the ticket is not expensive, it is very suitable for the next to the art museum to explore with, but in the museum in general, do not recommend special travel.

  • In fact, the place is really small, not tidy, the building itself has a good repair of reservations, unfortunately for the background of the year is not much, there is no time for the furniture, it is necessary to spend more imagination. There is a play show in this visit, it is not sure whether it is permanent or temporary, and it is interesting to watch it slowly. Stroll around to have free time to buy a ticket to see, the price is not expensive, the focus is not recommended.

  • Beautiful building with a small museum and gift shop. The museum presents the colorful history of the building and holds special exhibitions. When we visited, the exhibition was on Taipei’s architecturally significant buildings, which we found interesting and informative. Our visit lasted an hour. Admission is 50 NT (less than 2 USD).
  • Nice decor but not much to see (only paintings of buildings). Wouldn't hurt to stop by after visiting the Fine Arts Museum. But definitely not worth coming all the way only for this place.
  • Nothing special, just a house. I guess there is history behind it but still nothing spectacular.
  • Beautiful Tudor-style house. Don't see many Western buildings in Taiwan. The special exhibition at the time was LEGOs. They were all pretty creative. Since we went on a weekday, my friend and I were literally the only visitors in the story house, the only other people were the volunteer staff. It was a good experience. The façade really was amazing.
  • An old house with a rich history and rather interesting architectural design. These days, it functions as small museum that houses obscure exhibits.
