There's a lot to see in this museum. The ceramics were beautiful but what I love about is the big buddha on the first floor. It was my first time to visit the National Museum and I think one hour is not enough to see...More

My husband and I have long been in love with Chinese ceramics and we have a modest collection. It was our dream come true to finally see the top-of-the-line pieces that ranged from the Neolithic to the Qing Dynasty. The ceramics displayed were in impeccable...More

After visiting this museum, I have a feeling of frustration. My experience started with queuing alone as it was forbidden to queue with another person to "limit the size of the queue". Then the full museum was absolutely overcrowded by people pushing to see anything....More

Fantastic area. Go on Sunday morning. No one will be there ! Plus it's easy to get to. Use the MRT LINE BLUE to get there. Exit 4

I was amazed at the number of items on display especially the different kind of stones, old vases, jars and historical items. One thing i found is that these items were mostly from the Qing Dynasty. But then i'm not so familiar with the dynasties...More

Would recommend avoiding this museum at all costs. Nice building and surrounding areas. However, despite the expensive entry and audio guide (give that a miss too), the museum leaves a lot to be desired. The main attraction is a jade cabbage and a stone that...More

National Palace Museum is one of the most suggested places to visit in Taiwan, however; if you would really like to see the museum inside, you will just be disappointed as there's a lot of tourists vising the place, too. All you will see are...More

With all due respect to the “jade cabbage”, if this museum attracts 5mln people yearly, than so many museums in Europe should attract 50mln... far below the expectations

Try to make it to their guided tours to get the most out of the visit. Go early to avoid the crowd. Visitors can be quite rude and rough. Be warned.

As the reviewer above eloquently stated, it depends on your preferences. The exhibits are world-class, there are plenty of places to rest and/or relieve oneself, and there's a good cafe if you like to break up your visit. My... More
