It is definitely a must place to visit while in Taipei. The museum has great facility for visitor to enjoy and witness Chinese history aged as early as year 200 something.

The main collection is closed, and only the sculptural exhibit of Lien Pao Tsai and the “reappearance” of the Song Style textiles are exhibited. Nothing historical in this History Museum. Avoid this museum for now.

Full disclosure, I'm not a museum buff but I do appreciate history and culture. First of all, getting to the museum by local transport was fairly easy. The outside grounds were quite beautiful and understated. As I recall, there were 3 floors containing exhibits. I...More
