We visited this place in the morning and joined the guided tour. You can of course wander on your own but it was more interesting with the guide. Unfortunately the hourly tour is conducted in Mandarin. I am unsure if they have English tour on special request. The guide provided us a very good historical background about the Lin Family and explained many of the traditional features of the buildings.It was a thoroughly educational tour for us and we appreciate more of the Hakka subculture in the Qing Dynasty era. It was also an eye-opener to realise the significant efforts put into the restoration of this magnificent mansion by a descendant of the Lin family. After this visit, we went to the Earthquake Museum where the photographs of a destroyed Wufeng Lin Family Mansion were displayed.

There is another garden called Lin Family Garden in Banqiao. So, this one is called Wufeng Lin Family Garden. The entrance is the same as that of Mingtai High School. The entrance is free, but you have to register at the entrance. There is a beautiful garden with a lovely pond. Actually it is not very old, but it is a good example of a bourgeois garden at the beginning of the 20th century.

I took a long bus ride to get there, paid 200 TWD admission fee, which is a lot for Taiwan, just to see a minor attraction. There were no tours in English, though the staff could speak it. All the information boards were in Chinese. The building complex is historically important, but completely unimpressive compared to the multiple wonders that Tawan has to offer. Plus,museum closes 12-13 in the middle of the day.
I recommend to spend time and money somewhere else.

We enjoyed viewing this site although we would've benefitted from an English speaking guide. We just walked around the site and still enjoyed seeing it. The 1999 921 earthquake did extensive damage to the site, which considering its close proximity to the epicentre, its amazing anything survived. There is construction going on to re-build the site but the garden buildings seem to be intact.

Nothing to see and nothing to do... 15 minutes of visit, maybe for a Taiwan citizen is different.
Far from the city and nothing around...
Don't waste money and time
