Black Bridge Sausage Museum(黑橋牌香腸博物館)
The best sausage museum I've ever visitedBut also my first sausage museum. Went there out of sarcasm but was positively surprised. Nice but small exhibition about Taiwans past from a consumer perspective. Some information about sausages, but not too much. Free entry, free samples and a lot of nice selfie spots (a mobile sausage seller's bike, sausage stalls, sausage producing kitchen and Taiwanese fantasy about how European shop windows may look like). The exhibition and the museum shop are also suitable for vegetarians, but the free samples and the restaurant aren't

Museum and store for the Black Bridge SausageVisitors to the place get to listen and see the history of the Black Bridge sausage brand. Learn how the owner, Mr. Chen, made his sausage and grew the company. The top floor is the museum with replicas and videos of the company including a full-screen theater. They also highlighted pictures and items from each decade including pictures of McGyver and a Mazinger Z toy. The 2nd floor houses charts and panels about sausages and casings, spices and different sausages from the world. Each panel has a QRCODE that links to different videos on YouTube explaining the exhibit and its contents. Some have links to both Chinese and English versions. The ground floor is the store where visitors can get some ice creams and sausages as well as buy whole packs of different sausages and pork floss for take home. You can also request for ice packs to be included in the packing for those who have long distance travels to minimize spoilage.
Fake plastic sausages and really boring museumWe were hungry and we bought (corn) hot dog because it tastes good at night market...But it was mistake, because it looks like deadman's finger and tastes so bad...I don't understand why this museum exist, there is nothing special, nothing what you want to see and nothing good for eat...It was only waste my time...
Educational museum about food!If you like food, you cannot miss this museum! Housed in the Tainan's signature sausage factory premise is the newly-opened museum that tells the story of not only the history of the classic Taiwanese sausage brand (Black Bridge), the process of sausage-making, and the general facts about various sausages worldwide. Even though the museum is owned by a sausage factory, the museum is surprisingly not as advertise-y as other company-owned museums. In this small museum is three levels: 1st level is the gift shop, 2nd level is the world's sausages and ingredients exhibit (Apparently our lovely Taiwanese brand also has some products in Germany!), and 3rd level is the parallel history of the company and Taiwan and the process of sausage-making. Despite its size, the museum is pretty educational in delivering facts like the historical eats in various Tainan districts and the evolution of Taiwanese sausages. Fortunately, after the exhibits, the 1st level gift shop sells hot sausage to fill any hungry curiosity! The museum is free to enter, but if you reserve early enough, you can tour the actual factory in operation on weekday!
