The Taipei National Palace Museum is a world-class museum that hosts an eclectic collection of treasures kept by generations of Emperors ruling from the Forbidden City. In WWII, Nationalist troops seized the most important pieces in order to prevent invaders from ransacking China's national treasures. A twist of fate eventually brought these treasures to Taiwan.
The Taipei National Palace Museum is designed in the style of a Northern Chinese palace. The museum is home to hundreds of thousands of historical relics that make up the world's most comprehensive and precious collection of ancient Chinese artifacts. The entire collection covers 5,000 years of China's historical and artistic achievements.
The museum provides Chinese, English, French, German, Japanese, Spanish and Korean language guides and museum-related literature. The museum is a must- see on any visitor's itinerary.

Monumentally piece of artYou can easily spend a couple of hours here as it has couple of buildings and you can learn something about the history of the place. If you are in Taipei and have time this place is worth visiting.
Well worth it, even if the star of the show was elsewhereI spent a Tuesday morning at the museum - I didn't want to go on the weekend. Easy to get there by MRT & bus. I greatly enjoyed the porcelains and treasures. The Jades and bronzes
World's best museum of China's civilisationThis Museum is fascinating, especially if you take time to look closely at the paintings and ceramics.Some things, such as calligraphy, will be of most interest to visitors with an in-depth knowledge of Chinese culture. The Museum's collection begins in the Neolithic (new stone age) period. The National Palace Museum remains the best repository of Chinese art and artifacts in the world. You need around three hours to see it properly. The museum has a cafe and gift shop, which has many interesting items. Visitors can take a bus to the museum. The docents are very helpful, sign up for a guided tour if you can, it will help your understanding of what the museum has to offer. I have visited the National Palace Museum many times, but I always find something intriguing about Chinese culture. and civilisation
Outstanding placeWow factor when you get tho the place for the first time because not only the beauty of the buildings but also because of the surroundings so majestic. The mountains make the perfect ornament for the museum. Inside the museum you will learn about the Taiwan culture .
Enjoyed my visit. Great gift shopAs a museum, it was kind of average, but for some reasons, I really enjoyed it. If you try to check out everything, it will take you quite a few hours. Don't forget to check out the gift shops. Some items are on sale and they are very reasonable (for a museum store).
