My wife and I really enjoyed watching the changing of the guard. Very large memorial. It was raining the day we went. The actual memorial statue of CKS is inside the memorial but I suggest not going on a rainy day.

Coming out of the MRT station in the heart of downtown Taipei, you don't expect to see golden roofs and beautiful traditional architecture in an area full of urban concrete buildings. The grounds of the Memorial Hall are kept extremely clean and groomed. We happened...More

Yes they have handicap access. Elevators serve all floors. The grounds are a bit large though.
