Wonderful place to visit, taking times, and hard for children. It is like you are not to visit Taiwan if you do not take a tour over here.

Excellent exhibition, maintained well, good collection of various items, I especially enjoyed the porcelain section. Try to go at the less popular times, as there where 1000's of people on the Friday afternoon we went. To escape try the tea rooms on level 4 very quaint.

Nice artefacts and good bit of history. Glad to have gone, but nothing spectacular. Crowds of people but they moved along nicely so got to see everything. Gift shop was good!

This is one of the best surprise I had visiting a museum. The choice and quality of the elements that are displayed are incredible, from craftsman work to painting and writing ; it shows the long history of Chinese art. A must see.

If not for the KMT who shipped these things to Taiwan, one wonders how many of these would still be around today.

This a "not to be missed" attraction in Taipei! Allow several hours to view the breathtaking Chinese treasures on display here. Be ready for huge crowds of people. The earlier you go, the better. Go online days ahead of your visit to schedule a tour in the language of your choice. There is no charge for this. We had an... More

The museum was very well managed. The way exhibits were displayed is very well organized. You can spend a whole day here enjoying all the exhibits slowly. The air conditioning is very strong. For those who are afraid of cold, please bring a cardigan or jacket to keep you warm.

Many of the great treasures of China went to Taiwan with the nationalists and this is where to see them. The bronzes (some thousands of years old) the beautiful porcelains and the jade - wow! but be prepared to stand in queues and try to be patient with the flag waving Chinese guides who insist on pushing about and shouting...
