National Palace Museum, Taipei Reviews
This place is huge. Recommend to take a guided tour either through travel agents or online at least a week in advance. If unable to book a guided tour, at least get a self-guide. Always with lots of people 2000+ at any given time. To get to the Museum, take the Route No "Red 3" that will take you right at the entrance. Admission is charged on adults only (kids are free). Re entry is possible. All bags are required to be put to locker for NT$10. For children, must visit the Children Centre on B1 before paid entrance.
Very impressive. It contains many treasures collected over the thousands of years of Chinese history which were at risk of destruction during the communist revolution. They are well maintained and well presented but be aware there are also hundreds of tour groups and it really appears that the museum hits capacity quite easily. It was the busiest museum experience I have ever gone through so I can't give it 5 stars. After you get in if it's prime hours you have the privilege of waiting in line for another 40 min to see a rock shaped like a cooked pork belly. Enjoy.
Great selections of Chinese arts and antiques. Saw the meat-shaped stone it was very unique!! The national palace museum has the largest selection of Ru-ware, they were beautiful! Visited the museum in the afternoon until it closes at 6:30, there were some groups of foreign visitor groups, but overall not too crowded. They often have detailed information about the items displayed, really helped me to understand more about the arts and the background history. A must-visit when you come to Taiwan!
A must visit when in Taipei. Huge... and I mean HUGE collection of amazing artefacts of Chinese cultural history. The walk was almost too much for me, even though I love museums... which is why I probably should avoid going on a weekend. The only thing that sucks is the food selection... which to me is a lost opportunity for them to setup the ultimate showcase the Chinese culinary history. Here's hoping someone will take this suggestion in...
Great museum for Chinese art and history, the temporary exhibition are often really interesting too. The price of the ticket isn't cheap (350 ntd for one adult), but really worth it as you can stay as long as you want, and can easily spend 4/5 hours in the museum. BRING A COAT, the AC is often unnecessary cold. My favorite part was the one about the evolution of Chinese characters through history, and what supported these changes. I'm also a big "map-nerd" (does that exists?) and loved the part full of old maps.
