How grand!This grand building is a delight -- both inside and out. It stands on a main traffic circle in Tainan and has some displays on the outside as well as special exhibits in the inside. Although I do not know Chinese, this grand structure attests to the high esteen with which literature and literary life is held.

Anne and Ama exhibitCame across this museum by chance and I couldn’t help myself to come visit since I’m an avid war history fan, and Anne Frank is a living history from that period, it’s a cool comparison between the west and east, both suffering due to the war - Anna from the nazis and Ama(a group of women who were forced to be sexual slaves for the Japanese army). Great reading, but those don’t know chinese would’ve had a hard time following because most are in chinese only.
Impressive building from the outside, inside only for literature fansThe building makes an interesting picture, especially in the evening when it’s a facade is being highlighted with spots. Go inside though it’s not that spectacular, there are different areas with of course the focus on literature, if you are not a diehard literature fan, you may be disappointed.

Beautiful buildingThe museum suits book lovers and those who can read Chinese. I cannot read Chinese but enjoyed the architectural beauty of the building. It is large and well preserved. There is a nice cafe attached to the museum.
Excellent museumExcellent museum. Entertaining and educational. Maintained quite well. Worth a visit. Close to many other attractions.
