  • Must-visit in Taiwan. Conserving the essence of treasures of Chinese culture. Don't just take a look in rush, please stand up and back in front of a giant painting on the second floor. It worth taking a whole day to explore and feel the ancient treasures and find something you like at the gift shop in the end. I especially like the calligraphy, painting, porcelain and jade and bronze.

  • Impressive museums. Must see if you are familiar and interested in Chinese culture. You will find a lot of gems, calligraphy and clay art. Be prepared for huge crowds. Don’t forgot the garden! It is beautiful.

  • great exhibits, all of impeccable quality from the various chinese dynasties. easy to navigate with a orientation gallery to orientate the exhibits from the various dynasties. worth a visit. a little off the way but getting there is easy with either the hop on city bus or the public transport.

  • Really cool place and the museum has a fantastic layout. The tour groups make for a hilariously fun time too! #pork belly 4 life
