Introduce

The building was first built in 1882 as Anping Customs House. During the Japanese Period it was used by the Customs Club and Tainan Archives at different times.  After the end of World War 2 it was used as the Anping District Office at one point. Tainan City Government converted the building into the “Tainan City Yonghan Folk Crafts Museum” after Chiu Yonghan, a well-known businessman, donated his collection to the city. It is today the Fort Zeelandia Museum and there are four exhibition halls: “Reconstruction”, “Fortification”, “Official Narrative” and “Remnants.” The VOC symbol of the Dutch East Indies Company at the front of the museum has been preserved.

    A must see in Tainan

    Traveler rating:5 2019-11

    The fort was originally build in the 15th century by the Dutch to protect its commerce in the East, then taken from them by Caoxingu, a Ming dynasty general who fought against the newly establish Qing dynasty which finally capture it. Of the original fort, only a few walls exist. What is seen today was build by the Qing after its capture to defend this important part of Formosa (Taiwan). The canons displayed are also made by the Chinese army. The tall white tower that looks a little like a airport control tower was erected only in the 1970s to serve as a lighthouse. The museum is a must to understand everything about this fort as it contains numerous historical drawings and pictures. Quite interesting.

    FORT ZEELANDIA SMALL MUSEUM

    Traveler rating:3 2019-09

    This small museum located in the west side of Fort Zeelandia or Anping Fort. Admission ticket is included in the entrance ticket to Fort. Make time to drop here because usually visitors will skip this place. The museums show the history of the Dutch occupation in Tainan with map, relics and miniature mockups.

    Not a must see

    Traveler rating:3 2019-04

    We visited this place on April 21. It is not the actually fort constructed by the Dutch early 17th century. The museum inside the Fort gives you an idea how the Fort would have looked in those days. In the room next to the store is more information about the Fort.

    Not too big

    Traveler rating:3 2019-01

    The fort itself isn't very large, so walking around the premises takes maybe 30 minutes tops. The coolest thing about it is the relatively modern (built in 1945) observation tower, which enables you to see quite a bit.

    History of Dutch in Tainan

    Traveler rating:3 2018-12

    This museum is located within the compound of the Fort. Entrance is included in the ticket to the fort. The museums shows you the history of the Dutch in Tainan and also the development of the surrounding area. Not too much to see. You can breeze through the museum in 20 minutes.
