  • Hostels Taipei Story shape is special, is motionless applicable insert Sketch view point. If you want 畫 this 棟 Building, built Council Yes to Taipei Story Museum (Zhongshan bei Lu bian, over to promote underground road). Not over, really hot in the summer, without covering 陰 place for too long. Just the comparison well in autumn and winter.

  • Cute House located next to the Museum of fine arts, this one only differ in views. Hat's off to the sense of the tea merchants made wondrous buildings with wooden brick on the second floor on the first floor.

  • 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.
  • Beautiful building, but the exhibition was all about European art, and it's not what I came for, I'll try next time to see more local at.
  • Amusing to see a mock tudor house in taipei. Says it's the only one in taiwan
  • Interesting old house museum
