    Cool museum

    2019-09

    It was by far the most expensive museum that I've been to in TaiPei (even though it was only around 7 USD). They explained to me that it was a private museum. If you like ships it is for you. 5 floors of maritime exhibits. I believe there is easily over 100 models of ships from all the times. There are also real size boats from Asia. Nice, new AC building.

    High quality ships models, convenient location next to C.K.S Memorial Hall

    I liked the museum. It is located in Chang Yung-Fa Foundation building, home of Evergreen group, the company that owns two Taiwanese jewels - Evergreen shipping company and Eva Air airline. The museum is located next to C.K.S Memorial Hall. When you exit the Memorial Hall through the main gate turn right and walk until you see the roundabout. The building is there on the right. I walked to the museum from Ximending. I was impressed by the quality of models of Japanese and German WWII ships. There are also some authentic pieces at Titanic stand. If you visit with kids there are some interactive stands that kids would like. There is also a souvenir shop at the ground floor with some interesting items. Overall it is worth a visit. I enjoyed it.

    Amazing models, I enjoyed my visit even though I get seasick easily

    I'm not a boat person but I thoroughly enjoyed my visit. The museum has models of historic vessels (ever wondered what a trireme looked like?) and covers maritime history. Of course, there are models of contemporary boats, important vessels in history and exhibits on maritime practices (semaphore, vital equipment, major maritime events). There aren't many maritime museums out there so if you're in Taipei, check this gem out.

    Great museum

    2018-11

    I need to correct the review just before mine. The museum has much more to offer than what is in the lobby. It is also not free but well worth the 200NT or 100NT for seniors. There are five floors of exhibits with a terrific collection of models. The exhibits are well laid out and offer an informative history of ships and other naval subjects. I went on a Sunday and virtually had the whole museum to myself.

    Well it is free

    2018-06

    I was underwhelmed by this place but it was free. The main exhibits on the first level are essentially a model of a treasure ship, a small dhow (which is a vessel originating in the Gulf) and a traditional canoe. The models on the main floor were not great. One to see if you have time
