Lin An-tai Historical House & Museum 林安泰古厝民俗文物館

Anchor point


The two-century old Lin An Tai Historical Home is a southern Fujianese-style courtyard. The rocks that cover the front yard were taken from rocks that were used by mainland merchants to stabilize their ships. The pond in the front was used for defensives purposes. It also helped lower summer heat and provided water for drinking and putting out fires.

    A gorgeous scenery


    Twenty minutes’ walk from the MRT Yuanshan Station. It is part of the Taipei Expo Park- XinSheng Park Area. In the western are of the Museum, there is Lin An-Tai Mansion, a group of historical buildings dating back to 1754. In the Eastern area, there are newly constructed Chinese Jiangnan style garden and archaized pavilions. Much smaller than the Lin Family Garden and Mansion in Banqiao (the two families are different), but still a gorgeous scenery. Free entrance.

    Residence is historic landmark


    The Lin An-tai historic house and museum is a traditional Chinese farming family home, it is around 200 yeas old. It has a number of wings to house various generations of the family. It is built in red brick; the roofing is in terra cotta tiles. It has (or did have) good feng shui, with flowing water and a hill behind it. The residence is adjacent to Xinsheng Park, part of the Taipei Floral Expo Park. Best way to approach the Lin An-tai residence is to take the MRT and get off at Yuan Shan Station. It is around 20 minutes on foot to the house..

    This house once belonged to the artist-scholar Lin An-tai. It is build in red brick, in historic Chinese style, with tradional roofs. It's worth a look if you are in the area; you may have to walk for a while. The hose has goodd feng shui; it is around 200 years old.

    Nice place to visit


    Lin An Tai house is a transitional brick house with a beautiful neat garden. There’s also a small museum in it. If I remember it right, this place was build within the concept of Feng Shui. The best thing I like here is, with a perfect timing and some luck, you can take photos of airplanes in the sky with this ancient architecture. MRT to YuanShan, take a bus or 20mins on foot, a good place to visit nearby the city center.

    Ancient architecture in Taipei city.


    A beautiful old mansion in Taipei city. Admission is free. The design of this architecture is based on Feng shui. A hidden gem in Taipei city. A good place to spend your time on a sunny day during the non summer season in Taiwan.
