The building itself is a great treasure. Apart from literature exhibitions, there's also a children's library. Inside are plenty of children's books shelved according to publisher.

This is a museum on Taiwanese literature so it's not surprising it didn't mean much to me but they do make the effort of having general descriptions on subject areas trsnslated so there are some things to spend a bit of time on.

The Japanese built building itself is a treat, lots of history and well laid out, the only thing that gets me as in most of many museums in Taiwan - the lack of English in their display...if you can read Chinese it's a five star...More

The building is a beautiful building in European style. Inside they tried to partly keep it how it used to be. It is very cool to see that already at the beginning of the 20th century they had very elaborate window opening and closing systems....More

The museum offers interesting topics about taiwanese culture and the entrance is free. Also they have interactive stations which is also exciting for non mandarin speakers

I did not know that the Taiwanese aboriginals had literature until I went to does museum. Also featured is how Taiwan in literature has been influenced by China and Japan. And it even has modern literature too.

This museum is a European style building bit presents the various literature collections. I like the interactive exhibition but it's a pity that the imstruction is in Chinese so only the touriats who can read Chinese can get the idea to operate it.

West Central District/ North District
The West Central District is the most populous and the
busiest area. A lot of shops and hotels crowd the
district, and the long-standing history results in a
variety of street food. In addition to that, this
district also has the highest number of temples. This
is how it got the name “Tainan’s Pantheon.” Historic
buildings are literally ubiquitous. For example,
