It will take you many hours to really explore this massive museum and its adjacent garden. While it's best to view the garden in sunny weather, it's tough to go inside - so maybe 2 trips?
The weekend warning is due to the huge numbers...More
This site probably doesn’t need more reviews of this go-to museum so here are a few tips. Go on a weekday or go very early. I went on Sunday at the 8:30 am opening, and started at the top floor (3). I had the first...More
I will not get into politics; I will not discuss if the origin of this museum is correct or not.
This museum is a must visit. Please spend at least three hours and learn about Chinese culture and its development.

Museum has a fabulous collection of jade and porcelain scultures and figurines and the exhibit on Compassion and Wisdom was exceptional. Unfortunately, the two rockstars of the museum, the fake fatty meat and fake lettuce were not on display as they were traveling to other...More
I booked for entrance tickets using a travel app and I used it by scanning the QR code. The place was big and has a wide collection. Large bags are not allowed inside and I was asked to put my bag in a locker using...More
The building is stunning, apparently modelled on the Forbidden Palace in Beijing. The contents include some truly beautiful objects as well as those of historical significance.
The place is huge, spread over four floors, so you will need to be selective about what you concentrate...More
I don't understand some of the negative reviews on here. 350 NTD is expensive?! Nothing much to do except take good photos?! This is one of the world's finest museums, with the world's single greatest collection of Chinese art, ranging from the neolithic ages throughout...More
This building holds a fountain on history. Spread over four floors we were quite rushed on the tour we were on, as we had to keep to a timetable. o unfortunately did not get to see the full benefit of this building, but if you...More
From Google Maps, it look like your hotel is near a MRT station, no? Take it towards downtoan Taipei, and then switch to the red line, going to the Shilin station on that line. Once out of the station, walk directly out past... More
From Google Maps, it look like your hotel is near a MRT station, no? Take it towards downtoan Taipei, and then switch to the red line, going to the Shilin station on that line. Once out of the station, walk directly out past all the food shops to the main road. Turn right. There within 25 meters will be the bus stop. There are several buses that will take you to the museum. (About a ten minute ride, depending on traffic.) The subway will be something like 30 Taiwanese dollars, and the bus 15 -- one way. Coming back is more challenging because the bus stop at the bottom of the museum has very little English on the bus signs. (I am assuming you don't read Chinese.) Look for the bus that will take you back to the Shilin MRT station. We caught a bus in rush hour ... and the bus poked along so slowly, we could have walked there faster.
