If you are the cultural type of person, you have to visit the National Palace Museum in Taipei. You can go for a two hour visit from the short side to two-weeks if you are really into Chinese art. The collections were removed from the Forbidden City right before Japanese forces entered Beijing during the Sino-Japanese war, and later shipped... More

I think of all the sites in Taipei this was my favorite. The artifacts in here are gorgeous and if you consider the difficulty of preserving paintings, the collection they have here is astounding. Definitely check to see what special collection they have on display even though the permanent collection is worth seeing again and again.

We visited Taipei to see the museum. I was originally worried it would have been a tiring and exhausting experience (although very interesting) due to the aboundance of the artifacts, but found a well organised museum (selection of the display of exhibits, their display and the management of visitor flows) Took the guided tour (on the museum web page, no...

An absolutely amazing museum with exhibits carefully set out and a detailed audio description available for each gallery. The only problem was that it was so crowded when I visited that it was rather hot and tiring so perhaps try to choose a quieter time than mid- afternoon to visit. But definitely not to be missed!

We was here in May. It is quite easy to take a bus from downtown to this museum. There are so many objects with different topic like painting, metal, jade... you must spend at least 2hours here

Plan on at least half a day at the museum. There are two tours in English everyday and well worth the ticket price. Absolutely incredible collection and history. Beautiful setting just in the outside of Taipei. From downtown @25 min cab or quick subway ride. Even if you don't like museums at least go to see the grounds and historical... More

The greatest treasures of China all in one place. The place wasn't too big and had a fair sized mix of paintings, pottery, bronze ect. Make sure to check out the gardens, it's free with your regular ticket. Museum does get very full at times. Try to visit off peek.

It was sad that I stayed this place for only an hour and a half. It's a quite big museum that you need to allocate at least 2-3 hours. There are many Chinese artifacts that are hard to see outside of China or Taiwan and the sumptousity amazes many people. The reason I gave 4 stars, not five stars, is... More
