Yilan Literary Museum宜蘭文學館


Next to the Memorial Hall of the Founding of Yilan Administration in downtown Yilan, is the county’s Literary Museum. Built in a Japanese architectural style, it was formerly the residence of an agricultural school’s principal. After renovating and restoring the façade, the building became Yilan’s Music Museum. Then, to provide more people with an understanding of Yilan culture, it was changed to a literary museum.

The Museum retains its Japanese office-style building, but since that space is small, it was walled into several rooms with sliding doors. On museum grounds a dining area is also set inside; it used to be an old dormitory for government directors and secretaries. Visitors can sip a cup of tea in the quiet comfortable atmosphere here.

Yilan Literary Museum’s tranquil surroundings were once the setting for a TV commercial starring actor Takeshi Kaneshiro. Hearing this, many flocked to see the location and the Museum soared in popularity.

As you step into the Museum, its relaxed pace will bring calm to your mind. People cannot help but feel the peace and slow down their haste, losing themselves in the words of Lanyang’s authors and writers.

    It is called Museum of Literature, but actually it is a coffee shop. If you don’t take a drink, it is maybe not comfortable to stay longer inside. I just watched it from outside. The house is an old Japanese house, which was well maintained. It is worth taking a look.

    身處鬧區,但是相當幽靜,日式風,室內相當消暑。我是騎腳踏車在市區內閒逛而來,大清早還沒有開門,沒有其他遊客,待在門口就很舒服。 Locted in downtown but like an oasis, quiet and easy. full of Japanese style building, one good historic site.
