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

Traveler rating:4 14 Reviews

Monday:Break time





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

    Traveler rating:3 2018-11

    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.

    氣派的外觀有著歐洲建築美學的血液。 天花屋頂上圓頂雕花華麗非凡。長長延伸的迴廊,彷彿走入時光的隧道。讓人沉浸在悠悠的歷史文化的氣息中。

    新幹線台南駅行きのシャトルバス停に行く前に訪問しました。 キャリーケースも受付で無料で預かってもらえます。 この規模で入場料無料だけでなく、無料の貸衣装を着用して模擬裁判ごっこが出来る部屋があったりと充実の内容にお得感大です。 建物だけでなく展示品もわかりやすく、次回はもっと時間をとって訪問したいと思っています。

    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.
