“Park in the middle of city”
Reviewed May 8, 2012

sometimes it's nice to spend time during lunch in the park, but not so much in the night time.

“Not bad, not great. Visit only if nearby.”
Reviewed March 29, 2012

This is a small park where locals enjoy a bit of fresh air. It is surrounded on two sides by two museums - Taiwan National Museum and the 228 Memorial museum. The park itself has nothing much to offer except a gentle stroll or a sit down if you are tired of walking around the city. There is a central memorial to those who died opposing the mainland Chinese rule and policies in 1947, and the 228 Memorial museum is a nice place to go to if you want to learn more. Right outside the museum, there are information panels which give more details on the background of the uprising and photos of those who perished. So if you don't want to go the museum, or it is closed, you get a summary of the story for free.

“Nice, nothing exceptional”
Reviewed February 7, 2012

Something must be lost on me, there's a memorial, its really nice park but I'm sure it could be a bit more memorial like and informative.

“Detour if you're nearby. Is adjacent to the National Taiwan Museum”
Reviewed February 6, 2012

A significant site to the Taiwanese as within the park is a memorial and museum dedicated to the victims of the 228 Incident of 1947. A poignant place but is a welcome relief from the bustle and noise of the surrounding streets.

The museum is cheap (NT$20) but unfortunately not very user-friendly to English speakers. Virtually all the exhibits are labelled in Chinese characters only. However there is a free English leaflet and audio guide available (YOU NEED PHOTO ID OR PAY NT$300 DEPOSIT). The scheduled tours are in Mandarin only (at 10.30 & 14.30). The ground floor museum restaurant is good value, with an outdoor terrace overlooking the park. It is very popular with the locals and can be entered from the park too, without using the museum.
