Introduction

Administered by the Ministry of National Defense, the Armed Forces Museum presents the military history of the Republic of China with exhibits on past wars and battles and displays of historic weaponry and other items used by the armed forces over the years. For visitors whose impressions of war come mainly from books and movies, the exhibits directly highlight the terrible cost of war and the true value of the peace that Taiwan has enjoyed over the past 60 years.

    Very glad I found this museum

    2019-05

    I was hoping to browse a museum about Taiwan’s turbulent history with China but wasn’t sure if I’ll be able to find one. However, this museum turns out to be exactly what I was looking for. There was so much content that even though I read Chinese reasonably well, I prefer to use the English info-cards that is available on every floor. The no-photos rule was a bummer, though it didn’t seem enforced as I saw a couple of China-looking tourists happily snapping away. The peace of the museum was broken halfway through my visit by groups of school students who were on a field trip but have no interest in history. Exhibits like the VR booth was unattended with little instructions and a mediocre attempt at interactivity. That said, I did enjoy my visit and learnt a lot of the Taiwan’s past in the museum. Reading a slightly biased account in a country’s own museum always add a unique flavor to the history you read online.

    Very friendly staff, not much frequented, so no tourist buses which makes it easy to just enjoy the museum. Several fire arms from different countries on display, sword of Chiang Kai Shek etc. Entrance is free and if you are in the neighbourhood (old Taipei etc.), it is worth a visit.

    As a museum with free of charge, there are full of content and worth me to visit. Especially I am a military fan, it was exciting to see their history and some real military tools.

    Closed until March

    2018-12

    Unfortunately we arrived to discover the museum was closed for renovations and we had missed it by just 4 days. It won’t open to the public again until March 15th, 2019. I hope others see this before showing up to be disappointed.

    Free Armed Forces museum. Very much enjoyed by my children.

    We took my boys 10 and 8 there last week. It is not a large museum but it is well set up and has a reasonable amount of English translations. There are also English translations on boards that you can carry around each zone that give more details on a number of exhibitions. There is also an area where you can Handel several rifles.
