  • 1913 年建造、極像英國童話故事中建築的台北故事館、花五十元入館費除了可參觀館內一樓為磚造,二樓則為原木結構的特式建築外,還有以彩色瓷磚和鐵製爐口做成的古典壁爐。以台灣原創手藝及城市旅行為主的故事書坊和咋日童年懷舊式小公園也可以一看。  more »
  • 一間陳姓商人的故居,喜歡建築學的人必來看看。 雖有百年歷史,保養好好,是台灣人值得一讚的~古物保育。 看了後,你會發現,縱使有錢、有權及有勢,生命卻只有短短37年…值得嗎? 住了享受了只不過十一年光景,人生在世如果珍惜自己的話,又豈可英年早逝?  more »
  • On a small scale and non-commissioned officers. Each month a different exhibition concept of the exhibition, once an exotic appearance. Ansan station and close to the top. Near the tourist is a good place to hear and see. However, if you are not an interesting exhibition topics take you to reach the need ....

  • 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
