This museum is a little off the beaten track, and houses a small but significant collection of ancient Chinese artifacts. Narrations are in both English and Chinese. The National Palace museum tends to display "treasures" - historical artifacts from the royal collections, so those are more artistic and more "collection" type things, whereas this museum gives a much better feel...

My friend suggested this place for me visit.We entered free of charge. It is a small museum but its concept and theme is engaging and has educational value. Worth coming back again. There is nice garden behind the museum which we stayed to enjoy the breeze while waiting for the museum to open at 10am.It is not actually a Taiwanese... More

I am not normally an avid museum visitor. But this was a very worthwhile visit along with a visit to the Botanical Gardens.

If you wish to avoid the million tourist in the National museum, this is a nice, low price museum to see some aspects of Chinese culture. Worth the time

We find two reviews from TripAdvisor. One is 4 May 2012 and the other is 28 March 2016. Obviously these reviews are about National Palace Museum( NPM), not National Museum of History( NMH). The NMH is located at 49, Nan Hai Road, Taipei. Welcome your visit! Best regards, NMH

My parents and I enjoyed our visit to this museum. We were very impressed with the docent we happened upon. Her knowledge of the featured exhibit was impressive, and she was quite animated. The lotus pond behind the museum was beautiful, too. Given the heat and humidity of July, we were happy to spend time indoors in the air conditioning... More

We sort of stumbled across this place while wandering the area from Chang Kai Shek Memorial Hall. What a hidden gem. The outside was really impressive. We wandered the gardens for a while, but the heat was too much for July. So we went inside. Nicely air conditioned and a great price for a family of 4. We started on... More

The history museum of Taiwan is comprehensive, but not particularly interseting. You need to brush up on Taiwanese history in order to find it good.

This museum has many interesting artifacts. It's well air conditioned once inside. The gift shop is great with a variety of items, my family members purchased many items here; book, two notebooks umbrella, statues, key chains and pens.

I was wandering around at noon and was tired plus hot (it's 35 degree outside). This place is wonderful for a short visit. Ticket is 30ntd, wifi is fast, air con is cool. The explaining of almost all exhibition objects are in Chinese so I don't understand but they are all very nice and well maintained. I would recommend this.
