A Taste of Traditional Life at Lin Antai Historical House

One of the few buildings in Taipei City still retaining the arrangement of traditional living spaces, the Lin Antai Historical House is hosting the “Century of Peace and Stability” permanent display area starting today.
In addition to a rich collection of artifacts from Taiwan’s early days, the organizers have also set up food and cuisine models to provide visitors a more intimate exposure to scenes from traditional lifestyle spanning occasions such as marriage, child-rearing, banquets, and day-to-day life.
In addition to enjoying the displays at the mansion, visitors can also take part in collecting different color prints (4 colors total) hidden at various places in the house to complete a unique postcard as a souvenir.
According to the Department of Civil Affairs, the first permanent display is organized in 2016 to allow visitors to enjoy nostalgic memories from the past. The display area, comprising six sections, will make people wonder whether they have walked onto the stage set of historical dramas.
In addition to stationary exhibits, Lin Antai Historical House will also be holding various activities on Saturdays through November, 2016. The first Saturday of each month will be dedicated to handicraft lessons at the “Lin Antai Workshop;” the second Saturdays of each month will feature “Experience of the Season,” offering participants a ‘taste’ of seasonal food and delicacies; the third week will introduce visitors to “Children’s Fun of Dadaocheng;” and the last Saturday of each month will be reserved for conducting rituals for “Shouxian” and “Zuazou” babies and young kids.
