“If it wasn't free, I'd say forget it”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

I visited the museum while wandering around Kaohsiung while my husband was at work. I heard that the museum was free and figured it would help me pass some time. For me, the coolest part about the museum was the actual building. It was built under Japanese rule as a city government building. They gave me a brochure about the architecture when I went inside. As for the exhibits, there was only one that was in English and it took me awhile to figure out what it was about. The translations weren't great, plus I walked from the back to front instead of front to back because of no signage about where the entrance was (go up the stairs and it is in the back left corner). Overall, it was a decent stop, but definitely not a must see.

“Not much to see.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

It's free to enter. There's some exhibitions to tell you a little history of Taiwan. Not much to see.

“Summarised history”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

It gives you a background of Kaoshiung, aboriginals and 228 incident. But doesn't analysis on what happened, and how much Kaoshiung has progressed since.
It's a pretty much boring place, but it's free! So waste your time away and understand that slightly bit of Kaoshiung

“Interesting place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2012

Nice way to spend a couple of hours looking at the history of Kaohsiung and Taiwan. Do not expect anything fancy though, but it is free and near the river so worth a look.
