History Museum
Experience a throwback to the British Colonial era in Taiwan by visiting Fort San Domingo. The Spaniards originally built the wooden fort, which the Dutch reinforced with stone when they took over it. The British were its final owners, and they turned it into a consulate. The fortress resides on a hill and serves as a museum. Take in the view of the surrounding hills and the city, learn about the history of the building from the exhibits, and walk its grounds. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Fort San Domingo by using our Xinbei travel itinerary planner.

  • 三月底與樂齡同學規劃觀賞紫藤花;但覺得大夥從板橋到淡水的路程,如果只有賞花似乎代價過高,所以增加路過紅毛城;想不到進入 紅毛城 以後,發現了它除了環境優雅建築物古色古香,它更是代表了台灣的一部近代史.  more »
  • 春假期間,遊客絡繹不絕,學生與新北市民免購票入場。環境舒適怡人,維護良好,樓上屋內亦有畫作欣賞。想像當年的領事辦公居住的模樣,課本內的描述頓時鮮活。  more »

  • The old building is quite interesting because of its long and complicated history as well as beautiful faces. Old red bricks and well-managed garden look good. In addition, the sunset you can watch around this place is strongly recommended.
  • 有歷史價值,新北市民憑身份證免費。 Castle with history that it said history since quite long time ago. If you are foreigner you should like this place and you will learn history about Taiwan and enjoy the beautiful view from this castle.
  • The location has spectacular landscape views. The fort is crowded during holiday or weekend. This place is just good for the people who want to enjoy the fresh air and scenery since it is not much to be seen inside the building.
  • Not too many things to see in Tamsui anyway. Good sunset view.
  • Old historic fort, makes for a nice day trip from Taipei, only 45 mins via MRT, nice scenery from atop of the hill
