  • An old house with a rich history and rather interesting architectural design. These days, it functions as small museum that houses obscure exhibits.
  • 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.
  • Amusing to see a mock tudor house in taipei. Says it's the only one in taiwan
  • 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.
  • 外型十分搶眼,素有童話奶油屋之稱,曾為2010年花博展館,是市定古蹟
