从鼓浪屿日光岩往下看,一个红屋顶跃入眼帘,它就是大名鼎鼎的八卦楼,也是鼓浪屿的标志建筑之一。八卦楼建于1907年,圆顶高10米,有八道棱线置于八边形的平台上,顶窗呈四面八方二十四向,故称“八卦楼”,是厦门近代建筑的代表。八卦楼原主人是台湾板桥林家三房林鹤寿。1895年,林鹤寿随着父亲从台湾过来定居厦门鼓浪屿。他立志要盖一幢站在楼顶就能纵览厦门、环视全鼓浪屿的大别墅,做鼓浪屿的“基督山伯爵”。林鹤寿的这一宏愿被鼓浪屿救世医院院长、美籍荷兰人郁约翰得知。郁约翰原来是学土木工程的,懂得建筑设计。建造过程中,由于郁约翰设计的材料规格与市面上的不符,需要特别加工,为此动工以后问题多多。林鹤寿很快就资金短绌不继,虽然变卖家产及以钱庄担保,但是工程仍然时断时续。最后,林鹤寿终被大楼拖垮,宣告破产了。从此,人去楼空,八封楼成了废宅。

Every other year I buy a membership because my child and her cousin love to go. When we heard that the Space Shuttle Enterprise was coming to town we were excited even though it never went to space. Long story short, you don't get to go inside the shuttle. There is very little interactive displays. My sister went to see the one in Washington DC, she read more went inside and it was free.

The rest of the museum is as fantastic as ever. The family still enjoys it.
