Easy walking in this neighbourhood up the hill. Free if on weekends and lots of young people from Alethia university nearby. Old Mackay Family home also close by on this walking route. Good luck and enjoy!

The artifacts left are only the household items that they used in the past... Not that interesting really... Other than that, yes... tarpaulins with information about the former Bristish Consulates etc. The facade outside is good for taking pictures tho.

The building is quite grand but the display inside falls well short of what it could be and even the picture of Queen Elizabeth is faded and old. Interesting place to visit however.

The building lacks charm and the inside 'entertainment' is an old stove and some photos. If you want to see photos of something uninteresting try Google and save the journey

Taiwan has a complex history of intervention by foreign powers. The old British Consulate at Tamsui is an interesting building with well laid out displays and historical stories. A visit can be combined with Fort San Domingo and Aletheia University.

Tamsui / Bali District
The enchanting Tamsui Old Street boasts the most
beautiful Fisherman’s Wharf sunset of Taiwan. There
are also well-complimented delectable snacks such as
Ah Gei (bean curd) and fish ball, etc. On Bali left
bank, there is the Ferry Old Street and Wazihwei
Nature Reserve. It is relaxing and comfortable whether
by strolling or cruising through on a bike. Besides
the bustling business district, Tamsui is also full of
