Knowing who Chiang Kai-Shek was and his significance to history helps to understand the memorial. With that being said, the grounds are still beautiful if you want to just walk around without learning any history.

This is a spectacular complex in the middle of the city. The National Theater and Concert Hall are beautiful buildings in classical Chinese style. The park land around the buildings is beautiful, full of birds, a place you keep coming back to. The CKS memorial building is, well, in the style of Ming the Merciless (if you don't know, look...

I don't know whether is was because I went on a Monday or because it was raining but there were no crowds. A Japanese tour here and there but that was it. I was able to wander at my own pace and without getting pushed around. Do wait for the changing of the guards. It is worth seeing. Unfortunately The... More

How strange to have such a huge monument to a man who divided opinions so much. And how strange to have a monument and yet share so little information about the man and what he did. However the spectacle was good, the changing of the guards interesting and the building and the gardens worth seeing. Interesting to contrast it with... More

A really beautiful public square, monument, and statue. Watching the honor guards stand still is pretty amazing. The museum under the monument is interesting, and free. Worth a visit.

It is free, right by the MRT and bus, with free wifi and a lot of free exhibitions. Don't forget to watch changing of the guard in the highest floor.

I stopped here quickly on a flying half day city tour and then visited the grounds again a few days later for a couple of hours for a better exploration. Unfortunately there was some kind of rally going on with stages, large/loud speakers and 000’s of people. The main building is an impressive monument and provides good photo opportunities from...

Beautiful manicured gardens, buildings that are feats of engineering, friendly people. What more could you ask for in a large city? This is a place where you set your own pace and where it's possible to learn a little about the history of Taiwan as you wander. The little café has some great cakes on offer and good coffee, something... More

I am not across too much of Taiwanese history and therefore do not know too much about the Memorial Hall but it I am sure it means as much to the Taiwanese as the Lincoln Memorial does to the Americans. It is equally as impressive. It was not deliberate but we arrived just in time for the changing of the... More

If you are not very knowledgeable about some of Taiwan's history, a trip to the Memorial hall will be very good for you
