Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall, Taipei Reviews
The Dr Sun Yet Sen Memorial Hall is well worth a visit. No entry charge. Various halls exhibit artifacts from his life. There are also halls exhibiting various genres of art - some contemporary, some more traditional, bit all very interesting. There is also a study hall where research can be done. Every hour, on the hour, there is a ceremony for the changing of the guard at the main entrance. The military precision is amazing and a visit should be timed to incorporate this. There is a buffet restaurant in the basement, somewhat expensive. Also a large and another smaller gift shop selling high quality gifts. The grounds are worth walking around. There is a lake as well. It is a 5 minute walk from exit 4 of the Sun Yet Sun MTR station, so is easily accessible. There is also a state of the art theatre with various cultural productions.
A good place to understand a part of Taiwan's history. We arrived at the area at around 3:30 PM, so we tried to enjoy the scenery outside the hall. The place offers a good view of Taipei 101. We went inside the hall and visited the exhibits. It is said that the changing of the guards every hour is an attraction, however, what we witnessed at 5:00 PM was the exit of the guards and the flag retreat. Both were still a great experience.
The place is old and it shows little emphasis of his important to the history of Taiwan. A rich country like Taiwan should be able to provide more to the world in this site.
If you’re a tourist (especially from China), you may as well go given the paucity of “historical” sites. Sun has earned his place in history despite not actually being in China during the moment of revolution and despite the Republican experiment face planting during his lifetime. Otherwise, it’s just ok as a site.
Must visit this place. I love it beside I like museums, in here u can see a lot of calibrate and art. Suitable for you who like art
