The road to democracy
Aug 2021
Generalissimo Chiang Kai-skek was known as a strongman, but his son President Chiang Ching-kuo put the Republic of China on the road to democracy. There have now been two democratically elected Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) presidents, including the current Head of State, Tsai Ingwen, the first female president . The Kuomintang (KMT) is far from finished, meaning that the next presidential election will be a true contest.

Reminders of things past
Mar 2021
This museum contains artefacts from past Presidents of the Republic of China (Taiwan's official name). The two Chiangs -- Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek and his son President Chiang Ching-kuo -- are well represented. It's a reasonably small museum, but well worth a visit. Taiwan is a very different place today. It is worth remembering that Chiang Ching-kuo put Taiwan on the road to democracy.

Presidential treasure trove
Oct 2020
The current President of the Republic of China on Taiwan is Tsai Ingwen. She is the first female President of the ROC. She represents the Democratic Party (DPP). This is her second term. The Presidential Artifacts Museum is not far from her office. The museum has some interesting items, which reward inspection, By the way, entrance is gratis.

Great place to spend a few hours, NO Entrance Fee !!!
Apr 2016
Seeking Presidential Office building most ornate and stylish architecture. Visiting hours are extremely limited, did not afford time for our schedule to return. A bonus feature, if into foreign politics, Presidential & Vice-Presidential Artifacts Museum, open Mo-Sa 0930-1700. Offers historical information about all past-present Presidents, ROC Constitution, inauguration ceremonies and much more. If the weather not conducive to being outdoors, recommend a few hours to spend here. No entrance fee, 100% free, located directly behind the Presidential offices, close to the Xieman subway stop.

This is a small museum, right opposite the Presidential Office Building and about a block away from the Armed Forces Museum. It is only 1 floor, so it does not take too long. I believe a reservation may be required to view the film, because I was asked if I had made a reservation for the film and I said I was just passing by.

It has a general overview of the presidents - there are some fun "photo shoot" opportunities, such as a dias where you can pretend to be "sworn in" as an official, or wear a sash/chain of office. The main exhibits are in Chinese, but each room has a sheet with a basic overview of the room in English (and Japanese I think). But the individual exhibits are not necessarily in English - for instance, the Gifts to the Presidents room does have what the items is and who gave it, but I suspect the Chinese labels may have had more information than that (but maybe not.)

It's not a great museum, but it's mildly interesting and since I was already there, and it was free, there was no reason not to at least go in.

Western-style toilets and a small gift shop, NTD 10 to store your stuff in a locker. About a 5 minute walk from MRT Ximen Station.

If you are around...

If you are visiting the Presidential Office Building or any other place around (2/28 Park, National Taiwan Museum, Zhongshan Hall), you can spend some time in the Academia Historica, but do not expect much...

There you will be able to see some interesting presents the Presidents and Vice-Presidents of Taiwan (actual and formers) received, from many different countries (separated by continent). But, I mean, was it necessary to have a building just for it? I doubt it...

There are some other expositions (about the constitution, e.g.), but they are not that interesting...

OK, I have a disclaimer: I've seen some students (I assume they were, at least, by their age) having a guided tour (infortunately, for me, in Mandarin...) and they were very excited. So, it is possible that the "history behind" those objects was curious...
