Judicial Museum (Former Tainan District Court)(司法博物館(原台南地方法院))




Built in 1912, the Former Tainan District Court (原台南地方法院) features spectacular columns and a round, baroque style roof. Inside, you can see the magnificent and naturally lit dome, and the large columns are beautifully carved. The exquisite floor, with its colorful Victorian style geometric floor tiles, was created by Mariyama Matsunosuke(森山松之助). The court still retains the courtroom, archive room, safe room and a jail. There was originally a tower, which had to be demolished due to serious structural damage, but a tower art installation has been installed to commemorate it. The rare Mansard style(馬薩式) roof, popular at the time, contributes to the building's architectural charm.

    Ancient court rooms

    The old court house is transformed to a judicial museum. Not only the displays, but the ancient court rooms, where once trials were held, are very interesting. The entrance is free.

    타이난 사법박물관

    Traveler rating:4 2019-03

    타이난 사법박물관입니다. 다른 시내의 관광지들과 살짝 떨어져 있는 게 아쉽지만 그래도 내부 전시가 훌륭한 편이라 시간내서 가볼 가치는 있는 곳.

    日本統治時代に建造された裁判所です。中は見学自由です。 とにかく建物が立派です。当時の建築技術(日本の)は素晴らしいです。

    無料のアトラクション、歴史的な物語と司法関連の知識の多くは、壮大なアーキテクチャを参照してくださいに沿って、だけでなく、知識を広げるために。 弁護士や服があり、警察の制服は写真を撮ることができ、とても楽しいです。
