“A great way to learn more about Taiwanese history”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

The memorial is dedicated to the late Chiang Kai Shek (president of Taiwan) and is a museum of history where you can learn more about the Republic of China and Chiang Kai Shek. It is free to enter and browse. It is set in a large park and a stroll through the park/grounds is very relaxing. Every hour you can watch the changing of the guards on level 4. Something to watch as it is very interesting.

“Good place for everything!”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

Few people know this but at night you can go and hang out with your lady and walk around the gardens, gives you a great atmosphere and also you have a lot of space to share the night. Still is a good place for everything, during the day time you can go to check the change of guard at 5:00 pm and you can visit the museum and exhibitions as well. Still I think that for youngster at night the place definitely worth a visit. Believe me you will know when you get there

“Stunning”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

We were lucky enough to arrive at the time of the changing of the guard at the Chiang Kai- Shek Memorial Hall. Our guide rushed us out of the bus and got us there just in time. DON'T MISS THE CHANGING OF THE GUARD.! The hall is clad in wonderful marble. This was esopecially interesting because as part of our trip we were going to the Taroko Gorge where the marble comes from...
