    The Taipei Story Houses is currently undergoing renovations. It's unclear when they will be finished.You can look from the outside, it's quaint and one of Taipei's best-loved buildings. It's next to the Fine Arts Museum; the is an underpass under Chung Shan North Road that goes to the Story House.

    Isolated from Urban freeways ...


    First off, this isn't a very easy attraction to get to. There's a huge road and freeway that sort of isolate it from any pedestrian or bike friendly path. It's right next to the Fine Art Museum, and I would advise spending all the time your time there, and if you have any time left over, take a couple minutes and bop over to the Story House. Even though much of the architecture in Taipei is ugly and God-awful, for some reason the Story House didn't engage us,either, with its European look. There's so much to see in this sprawling city, you can take this one off your list.

    Venue for traveling exhibits


    This historic home is empty inside and serves as a venue/gallery for miscellaneous exhibits. The exhibit when we visited was on qipao (cheongsam), a style of women's dress. My daughter and I enjoyed seeing the dresses on the mannequins, which took about half an hour total. So, if you happen to be in the area and are interested in whatever is on exhibit, stop in. Otherwise, probably not worth a special trip.

    Quaint story house a Taipei landmark


    The Taipei Story House is a favourite mansion for Taipei people. A wealthy tea merchant had it constructed in the early Japanese colonial period. Now it is a museum. The Story House is immediately adjacent to the Taipei Fine Arts Museum. You can take the bus down Chung Shan North Road or get the MRT.

    The Outside of the House is Instagram-worthy


    If it met my expectations, I would love to give this place a higher rating. But sadly, it didn't. I mean, I thought we would be coming in to a Tudor mansion with all its Tudor furniture and fixtures in display. Something like a museum that will tell visitors how it was like to live there during 1920s Taiwan. But no. When we went there, all we saw were fine woodworks in display. Though impressive and interesting, it's not what we expected to see. And there are only a couple of floors and few small rooms to explore so it'll really give you a "is-this-all?" kind of reaction. But I have to mention the older gentlemen "guarding" the house. They were all smiles and they all looked friendly. One grandpa even tried chatting to us in our language. ^_^ But we did enjoy the playground. It's been quite a while since my sisters and I visited one so... :)
