The Xintiandi wedding banquet hall located in Taichung city, Taiwan underwent a major reconstruction and became known as the Western Museum 新天地西洋博物館. Western museum is housed in a classic feel off white colored building and complements well with Crawford Rebecca Light food restaurants and Mu Rui French restaurant in the vicinity.
Privately owned Western museum displays the owners’ wide collection of historical artefacts obtained from renowned Sothebys and Christie’s auctions of fine arts.
Stepping into the museum and be greeted by the carefully thought of and designed ceiling murals closely resembling that of those in sistine chapel and the Vatican museums. European porcelain plates from as early as the 17th century, ornate pieces of glassworks, intricately designed ancient time pieces, Henry IV bronze statue in the middle of the museum, baroque style water fountain and many others.
While at there, do indulge in some light bites at their in house restaurant and maybe pick up a souvenir or two at the souvenir shop.
