This memorial hall was built in memory of Chiang Kai-shek, the first president of the Republic of China. Work on the hall began in 1976, a year after President Chiang passed away. Design by C.C. Yang, who was also the architect for The Grand Hotel, the memorial hall is white with a blue roof, representing the dominant colors in the ROC flag; while the emblem of the Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) adorns the vaulted ceiling. A bronze statue of Chiang looks west symbolically to the Presidential Office Building and mainland China. The front plaza of the hall is also a major venue for democratic assemblies.

    Impressed by the building, the museum and volunteers... not so the Warhol Exhibition

    2019-01

    Really impressive... and that goes for the building itself and the wealth of information and displays inside it. There are helpful volunteers on hand to assist with whatever query you might have, and they cloaked my friends’ bags for free. Now to the current exhibition: Andy Warhol Pop Art. The exhibition covers for areas of Warhol’s work: self portraits and photos, celebrity portraits, magazine covers an album covers, and silk screen printing and the ubiquitous “others“. I am a huge fan of Warhol and hoped to increase my knowledge and understanding of the artist’s work. Regrettably this was a colour by numbers exhibition, focusing largely on the artist’s well known silkscreens and celebrity portraits. It included none of the large-scale works by Warhol, and the nod to these with three Campbell’s Soups cans was laughable. The interps in the exhibition proper were exactly the same - word for word - as printed on the (reasonably well designed) brochure you get on paying the steep NTD350 admission fee. There was an audio guide available for an additional price, but regrettably it was only available in Chinese, not much help to thr significant number of non-Chinese speaking tourists visiting Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall. The exhibition gift shop was almost as large as exhibition itself, and should serve as an indication of the focus of the exhibition organisers. This was a very disappointing experience. Five stars for the building and staff, one star for the exhibition.

    Splendid array of culture and architecture

    2019-01

    My 2nd time, the last time was summer- it was so hot walking through the Liberty Square down to the memorial hall. Last January, it was raining, but that did not stop me and the other visitors in traversing through the rain puddles just to watch the changing of thr guards, a spectacular sight to watch. Too bad i was not able to let them see the beauty of the Liberty Square, the architecture of the memorial hall itself as well as the National Concert Hall and the National Theater. Next time I'll visit the musuem.

    A huge complex with many attractions

    2018-12

    This is a huge complex with large gardens and an open plaza. When I went there were dance troupes practicing their routines: mimes standing very still; musicians, and it seemed to be a great place to just hang out. There were also stalls selling a bewildering array of Chinese herbs and medicines. There is a theatre, several restaurants and a book and souvenir shop. The main attraction however is the memorial hall itself which sits atop 89 steps. The changing of the guard on the hour is not to be missed. Get there early as there is often a crowd. The soldiers are very young, very slim and very well rehearsed. A great free attraction and you can spend as much or as little time as you like here.

    Chang of Guards

    2018-11

    Despite the renovation works, the key highlight was the change of guards. Late saw this decades ago and it's still military precision. Thoroughly impressed with the skill and handling by the guards....what a special treat
