MRT NTU Hospital Station (台大醫院)

[This post will be updated if new information about places around the station comes available. 🙂 ]

228 Peace Park (二二八和平公園)

This peaceful park is right at Exit 1 of  the station. Go for a stroll and visit the National Taiwan Museum at the park’s northern end. Located in 228 Peace Memorial Park, originally called the Taiwan Governor-General’s Office Museum, this is one of the few preserved Japanese-era museum facilities. The hall is done in elegant renaissance style, the façade in Greek-temple style. Other key features include an arc staircase, gable ornamentation, Roman-style dome, and wraparound stained glass. The irregular schedule of special exhibitions on Taiwan’s culture, geology, and ecology makes this a fine place to get to know Taiwan better.
