Sitting at the other end of Guanqian Road from Taipei Main Station, the National Taiwan Museum features a Grecian façade with towering columns, an acanthus leaves-embellished pediment and a domed hall accentuated by 32 columns, each with an ornate Corinthian capital, in addition to stained-glass skylights through which sunlight filters to cast dazzling patterns on the ground. While sentimentally bearing witness to Taiwan’s history, the Museum offers exhibitions as well as irregular events on a scale much unchanged since its founding.

2 worthwhile museums at the top of the Peace Park.We began our 4 mile circuitous tour by walking 400 m south from our Hotel Relax 2 to this museum. Its prominent dome, seen blocks away, is the dominant feature inside its huge main hall. Reception gave us free senior tickets and we proceeded through the 1st floor's excellent special exhibit of Australian Aboriginal bark art. An elevator took us up to the 3rd floor for the natural history hall where we passed the Chinese pangolin before seeing the interesting and nicely described artifacts from Taiwan's indigenous tribes. Our tickets were also valid across the street at the Land Bank Museum featuring its old 2 story bank vault and an impressive Dinosaur Hall. Both excellent for a short perusal.
Beautiful artifacts from the Dynasties pastWe saw many examples of carvings, pottery, writings and ceramics from the Ming and other dynasties. The museum is well laid out, easy to find your way around and has water available for you on most floors near the rest rooms.
Under renovationGood presentation of natural history discovery in Taiwan and also temporary exhibition of Australian bark art. Part of museum is closed for installation while some interactive medias are not function well. The renovation will be carried out until next year.
Short Visit for a nice cool restWe came here on a Friday and it was just a quick stop out of the sun. One whole floor is under renovation and the rest has some exhibitions from the early Japanese explorers. In my humble opinion, If you only have time for one museum visit in Taipei, this is NOT the one.
Good for a short visit to learn about TaiwanThey have different exhibitions at each level. Good if you are travelling with family, solo or with friends. Although there was construction at one of the exhibitions in one of the floors, the rest of it were still pretty good. I especially liked the ones about the animals.
