Definitely an educational visit but was rudely disrupted by the hordes of tourist groups crowding around exhibits. The place was like a market!

With busloads of tourists from China disembarking, our beloved National Palace Museum has become a veritable zoo. These tourists wish to see the famous jade cabbage and need to say that they have been to the Museum during their visit to Taipei. For this, we have to suffer the shoulder-to-shoulder crowds. The museum is, of course, excellent. One could wish... More

One of my favouritest sites in Taipei. Have been about 6 times spending many hours strolling around, reading about the exhibits. Two kinds of people go there: those that that love it and those that like it. The 'love it' types could spend hours there perhaps even going back a second time; the history buffs! The 'like it' types (my... More

If you are interested in Chinese history, this is the place to go. You can spend a whole day there if you love looking at antiques or just 2 hours for a quick visit. http://www.npm.gov.tw/en/ provides great information.

This is the most boring places of interest in Taipei that I have been too. There is an entrance and lots of tourist on tour from China who are so noisy. I would not advise anyone to go there if you time is limited in Taipei. Sun Yat Sen and Chiang Kai Sheng are far more interesting.

So many things to see, but be prepared to brave the growds and tour groups. We arrived late morning and stayed the rest of the day. The tour groups never abate! Listening guide was OK, but became boring quickly. More fun just to look at the many things inside if you don't have much time. Restaurant on 4th floor was... More

So crowded you couldn't see anything. Complete waste of time if you only have a little time to explore.

Visited the museum the second time in March. My first visit was some ten years ago. As my visit to Taipei was very brief and I called the museum a day earlier to know the time of in house museum guided tour and was disappointed to know the service has been discontinued. So we went but very surprised the huge... More

I had a few extra days on a business trip and a co-worker that was born in Taiwan and he was kind enough to take me to the musesum. The art on display was fantastic. It was crowded but well worth the time we spent!

Just as you would do when you visit the Louvre in Paris, figure out what you would like to do or see before you go. If you don't, then this is a place that you can easily spend 1 day looking at the exhibits.
