I loved every minute spent in this museum! The audio guides (NTD 200/ person) were the most helpful in the portrait gallery.

Outside there is a bridge with Greek mythology structures and a fountain. There's also a park where you can have a picnic like the locals do! It is definitely worth a visit when you are in Tainan.
This is such a thoroughly unique museum in Taiwan. The idea that someone has gotten enough cash to build essentially a Versailles in the middle of nowhere is amazing. The collection is beautiful. The outside gardens are lovely and a great place for a picnic. If you live in the area you've got to go because it's free for local residence. If you don't live in the area, it's worth an afternoon.
