“It's worth to visit if you are interested in history”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2011

The things that i like the most at this place is the story-line of President Chiang's life and history of Taiwan. Those are displayed by pictures with detailed notes and stories.
As well as the hall's design is quite attractive, very typical chinese style. I've seen in Mainland China some halls have same design, but this place probably impresses me the most.
Visit this place will offer you more viewpoint about Taiwan issue, as i have been to Mainland China couple of times; combined all information generate objective understanding.
One more good thing is this hall is quite close to an area which is full of restaurants (i do not really remember the name, probably is Yongkang); try to enjoy Taiwanese food if you can.
If you wanna try sugar-cane juice, there are sugar-cane juice shops in front of the hall's gate, quite cheap, i really liked it!

“A Beautiful Place to Visit!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2010

When you're in Taipei, I highly recommend stopping by the Chiang Kai-shek Cultural Center and Memorial Hall. I was there during the early spring time, and the landscaping was gorgeous. The National Concert Hall and the National Theater are also here, so you'll get to see some fantastic architecture, too. Once you climb up to view the Chiang Kai-shek statue inside of the memorial building, turn around and spend a few moments gazing over the grounds of the cultural center. It's a great photo op! It's also easily accessible by Taipei's subway system.

“Gorgeous by day and Night”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2008

If you're looking for some great pictures while in Taipei, Memorial Hall is not to be missed. The memorial, the national performance centers, and the gorgeous park containing them are bustling at all hours. Theres live traditional Chinese music some days. The area feels very safe. A must-see in Taipei!

“A Historical Must”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2006

The CKS Memorial Hall is dedicated to the "father of Taiwan", Chiang Kai Shek, a statue of whom is located inside the impressive building. It's guarded by soldiers at all times, and if you arrive at the right time, you may be able to watch the changing of the guards, which is not as flowery as the British version (i.e. no live band!) but still interesting to watch. The rest of the building holds a free exhibit regarding the life and work of Chiang Kai Shek and includes photos, personal belongings and writings.
