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.

I had some time before my late-evening flight and spend a good four-hours enjoying the rich history of Taiwan and the many exhibits that the museum provides to a curious visitor.

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

Just a few historical objects to see, less than 10 probably. 1st floor consists just of a corridor due to space being occupied by another exhibition (not included in the ticket price), but that's where all but 1 historical exhibits are housed. 3rd floor closed....More
