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.

    Interesting house


    Lin Antai House is set in the parkland of Xinsheng Park. A cool place (in all senses of the word) to wander around. The house has interesting architectural features and is well worth a short visit.

    Very interesting architecture/scenery


    The area is beautiful with very interesting architectural buildings/rest pavilions/ponds, etc. It is old, and could be kept up better, but it's still nice. There are more modern sculptures around too, here and there. Lots of photo ops, there were at least 2 wedding/fashion groups going around taking pix while we were there. HINT: they have a little booklet that you can go and collect stamps around the place. We missed the booklet on the way in, but saw it on the way out. Admission is free to this place, which is much better than the Lin Family Mansion & Gardens which charges 80NT. Lin An Tai compares to the Lin Family Mansion except it's much smaller. The buildings at Lin An Tai seem to be better maintained in that they have more color than the ones at Lin Family Mansion/Gardens, but technically Lin An Tai is like a hundred years older I think. Oh, they had water dispensers in multiple places around, with hot or cold options. This was helpful as it was SO HOT (we went in August).

    Very Quirky yet Beautiful and Interesting


    Very much worth the visit -a very interesting look at a Chinese residence of the wealthy. Feng Shui to the max, design supreme with beauty at the core. Tucked away in a little corner of Taipei but really worth the visit.

    Great look at 1800's ornate house!


    This is off the beaten path, we got there by taking a taxi ride for about 10 mins - it was super cheap to do and saved some time! The House and Museum is a really amazing place, showing how a rich family lived in the early 1800's. Built from 1783 to 1823, this was the home to a rich businessman. The house has been preserved (although moved from it's original location) and gives a fabulous insight into how rich families lived in those times. Bedrooms with very ornate furniture and beds are displayed (how many concubines???!) as well as the servants quarters, entertainment areas and a pond. It's a fascinating view into one of the oldest houses in Taipei and well worth a visit. We enjoyed our time there.

    Lovely complex of historical buildings transplanted from elsewhere to avoid demolition. The new site has pretty gardens & bridal couples use the area to have their pre-wedding photographs taken.
