“Great art- a visit is recommended”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2013

I wished I had more time to be able to take more pictures.
I was amazed on the architecture, and the exhibit inside the hall

“Huge building, great museum”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

This is a huge building! There's an hourly changing of the guard that's not to be missed. Also, an excellent museum telling the story of this national hero's life with artifacts like uniforms, books, cars, and a full office with wax CKS behind the desk.

“Taiwan's answer to the Lincoln Memorial”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2013

If you visit the Chiang Kai-Shek memorial after visiting the Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC, you may find yourself drawing quite a few comparisons between the two.

The memorial is located in the Zhongzheng district of Taipei and is easily reached by mass transit at the subway station of the same name. Many tour companies also run buses here. The memorial is located on the same grounds as the national theater and concert hall.

The memorial itself is a very large pagoda style building inside which is a large statue of the man himself. Underneath is a shopping area for some reason, and not just a standard gift shop like most places have. The day I went the memorial itself was closed so I couldn't see much inside, but I found myself quickly drawing comparisons to the Lincoln memorial in DC. Not sure what is was exactly that made me compare the two but I couldn't shake the thought.

“Interesting insight into history”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2013

We really enjoyed visit to the memorial hall but enjoyed the gardens even more. We visited on a Sunday and loved the activites taking place i.e. marching bands practicing for competitions in USA, drumming groups, Marshall arts demonstrations, really enjoyable afternoon people watching. Followed this with visit to Botanical Gardens, lovely laid out park, although out of season would love to visit when flowers and trees in bloom.

“Interesting place to find out more about Chiang Kai Shek”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2013

From this memorial, you will realise that Taiwan place a lot of emphasis and importance to Chiang Kai Shek. The memorial hall documents about his family and his achievements and contributions to Taiwan. They showcase his pictures, diary, documents, medals, etc. in the memorial hall.

Do catch the hourly guard changing ceremony at Level 4.

The memorial hall also house some temporary exhibits, e.g. Exhibition on the late song bird Teresa Teng, so do check their website for the latest details. Fees may apply for these exhibitions. There are no entrance fees to the memorial hall.
