National Palace Museum, Taipei Reviews

  • This is an excellent museum to get lost in for hours on end. Though it will take you a little further afield from the other sights, it's worth spending some time there if you have more than a couple days in Taipei. We went with a tour, so they necessarily took us to some other spots nearby (which weren't great) but still worth the trip. There are quite a few historical items from Taiwan and East Asia that are wonderful to see. Strongly recommend a tour guide as well!

  • The museum is really cool. I think there is enough to see that you could spend hours there looking at the variety of history and special artifacts. We spent about 3hr here and only saw a portion of what there is to see. Lots of people, and you have to check your bags. Luckily you get your money back when you get your bag.

  • National treasures displayed in an organized fashion. Knowledgeable staff are on site to assist with guided tours available and translation in multiple languages. On site free (get your money back as you re-open the) lockers made it easy for visitors not having to carry their belongings in the museum.

  • Nicely displaying all the antique and detailed introduction. Pity the introduction plates doesn't have any elimination and it's a little hard to read. A LED light from the back of plate would help a lot.

  • Museum really is breathtaking inside and outside. Tour guides are very informative as docent walks you through the dynasties and timelines. I remember the ancient pottery and scroll art being particularly impressive. Just gorgeous all around!
