“History, Tradition and Culture.”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

One of the best attractions in Taipei. Had previously seen the CKS Memorial and was told the Changing of the Guard Ceremony was similar. Having been impressed, decided to view the SYS one. Very impressive, in some ways better viewing opportunities due to the first floor balcony. If you have children, definitely get a place, best on statue's right hand side. The Changing of the Guard Ceremony, on the hour is very impressive, consisting of close order drill, carried out with precision. As someone who enjoys photography, once the ceremony was over the Hall emptied and allows you to get some fantastic photos, especially from the balcony, a lasting memory of Taiwan. Outside the Memorial Hall, there is a wide range of culture on show. People practicing meditation, Martial Arts and Young people their Dance moves in the reflection of the glass. I also enjoyed watching the kite fliers, whose kites were about 600-700 feet in the air. There is also a lake in the grounds where you could feed the fish. A great location to photograph Taipei 101.
Very relaxing, cultured experience.

“History nerds delight :)”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

The changing of the guards was awesome! They were in sync and it was pretty damn good. The museum had a neat lay out and there are two parts to it...one is for $7 bucks the other part is free. Must see in Taipei.

Been many times here. It's lovely open space, excellent changing of the guard and some very interesting insights into the founder of the Republic of China.

“Spacious, not too crowded, and just nice”
Reviewed June 22, 2013 via mobile

Be sure to check out the guards, they change shifts once beginning of the hour.. During evenings, you can see families there, some flying kites, some bringing dogs for walks.. At night, you can see groups of people dancing, or just spend time to have fun together..
