I enjoyed it. I thought the memorial hall gave a really interesting sense of the political culture of Taiwan. The giant statue of Chiang Kai-Shek overseeing the elaborate changing of the guard, in front of a rapt packed audience, plus the series of bas-reliefs recounting his history, plus the small museum exhibit of his life and the revolution, altogether seemed...

Knowing the historical relevance will make the trip better, for younger kids it will just look like more old buildings. Watching the guards switch makes the trip a lot more exciting.

The architecture and attention to detail blew my mind. Really amazing view from the top of the stairs. Changing of the guards happens every hour and is worth seeing. Make sure you get there about 10 minutes before the hour to get a good view. It is hot inside the monument and on the grounds so be sure to bring... More

This is a great memorial hall for Chiang Kai Shek. The outside is spacious too for kids to run around and play. Inside have many pictures of the man and the history of China under his leadership.

This is a must see, the people who escaped main land China to the island brought what precious articles they could to preserve the history of China from the communists. It is amazing to see how advanced the Chinese were compared to the rest of the world. It only made me want more and feel bad about what had been... More

I was pleased and impressed to visit the Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Building. It's vast , however very friendly and easy to visit. Most of the pictures and objects are self explanatory but a guide will help of course with the details. It's a must for someone interested in the Taiwan genesis and also would be a thankful gesture for your... More

This important site maintains historical traditions and culture. The changing guard is worth waiting for and happens regularly. Rather far to get to, but interesting and great in photos.

Memorial Hall in Taipei is an awesome testament to the grandeur of dictators, and a vital part of the geography of Taipei. Museum dedicated to CKS his life, took some pictures of the Caddy (Cadillac) he rode, to show to my colleagues.

Beautiful monument located downtown and presenting gigantic buildings and a very interesting museum you can reach after several steps. It is typical from Taipei and pictured on almost every postcards so be the next one to enjoy this magnificent building. The alleys are green and flowered during the season.
