    No.1, Zhongzheng Rd., West Central Dist., Tainan City 700, Taiwan (R.O.C.)

The National Museum of Taiwan Literature (國立台灣文學館) is Taiwan's first national-level literary museum. The exhibition areas in the museum are bilingual, and even feature multiple languages, introducing Taiwan's literature and culture. The museum is meticulously designed, with exhibits ranging from architectural history to interactive installations and puzzle-solving games. It is definitely worth spending at least half a day there.

The building has high ceilings and is adorned with red brick walls, preserving construction techniques from over 100 years ago. The first floor houses a gift shop, a spacious rest area, and the basement is a children's reading room, creating a literary atmosphere. The abundant interactive facilities make the serious exhibitions more accessible and fun. Visitors can also join guided tours to gain a more direct understanding of Taiwan's local cultural development.

Admission to the museum is free, and it is open every day except Mondays. For visitors to Tainan, it is a highly rewarding and cost-effective place to visit.

Originally the government building of Tainan Prefecture Hall, the National Museum of Taiwan Literature (國立台灣文學館) served as the administrative center of Tainan under Japanese rule. It features a Mansard roof and a classic French feel, evidence of Japan's westernization and colonization in Taiwan. Despite being almost destroyed during World War II, the building was renovated and eventually became a museum, housing a wealth of historical materials about modern Taiwan literature.
