A Stage for History and a Base for Dreams
Based in Tainan, one of the oldest cities in Taiwan, the National Museum of Taiwan History is located in one of the most historically meaningful places — the Taijiang Inland Sea. It is also where the story of the Museum begins.
Long before the 17th century, merchants from the East and West met near this location to carry out trade.
During the Qing dynasty, the inland sea became part of the land and attracted early immigrants with hope and dreams. This area is an important stage of history bearing on the continued stories of Taiwan, as well as an ideal location for the Museum, which reminds people of the vitality and diversity of the land and the people.
Occupying 20 hectares, the Museum Park is where the humanities encounter nature. This Museum Park is built to accord with four precepts: “Knowledge,” “Nature,” “Folklore,” and “Performance.” Once here, visitors can explore history and Taiwanese culture, and experience the beauty of Taiwan, as well its leisurely atmosphere.
Be advised that the Opening Hours for each facility should be based on the notice on site.
Lotus Lake and Fraternity Lake
These two lakes, which can hold up to 6,000 cubic meters of water, not only serve practical purposes, but also provide a habitat for resident and migratory birds. It is a perfect site for taking a walk while the sun is setting.
Known as “the highest peak” in Annan District, and there is a banyan called the “Tree of Hope” on the top of Hope Hill. Visitors can enjoy not only a panoramic view of the entire museum park, but also overlooking Southern Taiwan Science Park and the Freeway No. 1.
The Education Place
Designed to be a place for families to rest and learn about ecology environment, “Fun” is implemented as the starting point, consisting of three elements of “dream, inspiration, and Taiwan.” This area is also divided into the four areas: “Grass” area is a history experiencing corner, “Water” is an area for dabbling, “Wind” section hangs plant-like art works, and “Sand” area has a sand playground featuring the shape of Taiwan.
