  • The old court house is transformed to a judicial museum. Not only the displays, but the ancient court rooms, where once trials were held, are very interesting. The entrance is free.

  • A good place to learn history of Tainan.
  • Interesting building, very informative on the judicial systems in Taiwan. Love the hills where u could dress up in a robe and role play as players of the court. Could finish the walkabout in 30 mins. Also remember to drop by the mirror room where u can see the tip of the tower upside down. Not forgetting the mirrors that illuminate the hallwAy
  • One of the three major buildings in Taiwan during the Japanese occupation You can see the top architectural aesthetics of that era All structure, design, lighting Are very much like the Japanese era Most of the main body and roof use wooden building materials And many joints use wooden dowel structures No steel nails used A greater reflection of the Japanese people's precise mastery of architecture And attention to detail From floor to ceiling to every pillar There are sculptures and glass embellishments You can also see the original appearance of the court when you walk into the court Prison for prisoners Warehouse where judgments are kept Robes worn by judges and lawyers Vividly restore the scene of the past Now open to the public for free Also held many law-related exhibitions Let us know more about the court No longer afraid of the court Reverse ordinary people's cold stereotype of the court
  • A historical judicial museum of Tainan. Free entry. There is a public parking lot under the 2nd Art Museum.
  • Amazing. A great interactive museum of the history of justice in Taiwan and really a history of western courts. There are fun things for children and lots of hands on experience. If you are interested in architecture and restoration this is also for you. Old style joinery disassembly and reassembly. Clearly impressive with a welcoming staff and comfortable washrooms.
