This museum is so large with the world's largest collection of priceless Chinese art treasures.

I could spend all day here but I was on a tight schedule. So I made it special effort to see a few of the “National Treasures”.

Jadeite Cabbage -
The cabbage is thought to be a wedding gift because it has a locust on top with a katydid, traditional symbols of fertility.

Meat-shaped Stone -
A piece of jasper carved into the shape of a slice of Dongpo Pork.

I think all the artifacts in the museum are National Treasures.

There are audio tapes available
The Chinese civilization recorded their HISTORY OF LIFE IN ART FORM ... at the National Palace Museum.

Appreciate the building and interiors (columns, ceiling, etc.) more than the exhibitions. Though it names "Nation museum" however there are quite few things or exhibitions can see.

It is a museum I do like because in Taiwan you seldom can see this clean , simple, and spectacular western style museum. If you would like have some quite time, enjoy the simple art, you are advised to spend one hour to walk around to see this museum.

Also, the entry ticket can also cross the road to explore "natural history branch" which also take you around one hour.

If the weather is good, you can also stroll the park around national Taiwan museum. You can spend a whole day in this area and enjoy the art, relax and have some meditation.

Years ago, this museum was dank and the exhibits were repaired with sticky tape It has not beeen touched since the Japanese colonial era (1895-1945). Now it has marvelous displays and the building is spick and span. It's walking distance from he Main Train Station. If you only see one museum in Taipei, see this.

This is a relatively small museum, but it is packed with interesting artifacts and narrative about the island's history, whether about the aboriginal inhabitants or about its flora and faura. Located in beautiful Peace Park, the museum contains many pictures 100 years old+ of Taiwan's original residents and their villages, as well as many framed and preserved animals, insects, and shell creatures. A very interesting exhibit if you want to learn more about the island, including which native animals are now sadly extinct. A comprehensive visit won't take more than 2 hours tops. See the equally impressive museum across the street for a quick visit to dinosaur land -- ticket for one museum is valid for the other too. Seniors get in free!

The Museum was built during the Japanese colonial era (1895-1945). It has been renovated beautifully, it is well worth the small entry fee. At the moment there is a very impressive exhibition of Australian Aboriginal art on show. You learn a lot about Taiwan's people and fauna.
