    Hiddne gem: simply superb

    This is not a well known museum, and is clearly off the beaten track. One of the several museums on the campus of Academia Sinica (near the Nangang MRT station - take a cab from the station, is about 100-120 NTD). Only open only Wed and weekends: and Wed is an excellent time to go since you will have the museum to yourself. And what a collection! Stunning display of various top tier (i.e. National Treasure level) artifacts in both the permanent exhibition as well as the special exhibition on Eastern Zhou bronzes. Nice environment and fairly detailed explanatory notes. Not to be missed for lovers of Chinese culture and history

    Excellent collection, must visit it

    I went to this museum by accident. It has exquisite collections. It is a hidden gem in Taipei. It only opens to public on Wed and Sat. The collection from a king's tomb and on minority on SW China blew me away. The best free museum I have ever been to. Do not miss it. Since it is located in the Academia Sinica, the best way is to get off Nangang station and take bus to the Academia Sinica. Or taxi.

    可以安安静静看看精华文物的地方

    2018-02

    人非常少,周日一早开馆过去,参观了大半天估计参观者十几个人左右。可惜这次没能赶上周六参加导赏。另外展馆面积有限,相信还有很多未能摆出来或者要分批摆出来。
