No english translations, but awesome things

Very interesting place, small though. There were no English translations, but the guides were very helpful in Chinese. Nice to visit on your way to the temple up the mountain.

I wasn't very impressed with the museum part... it was under renovation and looked like it was thrown together in about five minuets in someone's basement.

The various living rooms, bedrooms, study and kitchen gave one a feel of the day to day lives of the Taiwanese probably from the late 1800s to early 1900s.

Meander around the park, look at the turtles and ducks in the pond, get an ice cream. Then go downstairs to the museum. Some of the exhibits have English explanations, many do not.
