It's a lot smaller than you'd think, with just two floors. The exhibits can be finished in under an hour, max, and there's nothing incredible inside. The staff are, at least, very kind and helpful.

The main museum will not be worth the visit if you're unable to read Chinese characters as the displays are abysmal. This is especially so for temporary exhibits. The displays seem disjointed and there is no real theme to the main museum. The dinosaur exhibit at the Land Bank Exhibition Hall is much better. Do not visit if you've got... More

The museum has three floors, but as of February 2017, only the second floor is opened. The other two are in construction. The exhibition on the second floor is 100% in Chinese and since there isn't any audio provided by the museum it is imposible to understand anything unless you speak Chinese. So my visit lasted 4 minutes in total... More

National Taiwan Museum is not flashy and nor is the prices at NTD $30. But combined with access to the Land Bank Exhibition across the road it's great value. There are no crowds and it's not huge so a nice quiet stroll around. 2nd floor is half fixed exhibits on Flora & Fauna (not very interesting for non-Asian as all... More

This is a fairly large museum and is across the street from its sister building which most people forget to visit. The building across the street is where all the dinosaurs are and local history in general. You will find information about wouth Taiwan and the indigineous people that live there among other things.

The buidling was built by the Japanese colonial government in the early 1900s. The architecture style was very European and interesting. The museum is located next to the 228 Memorial Park, which is a nice park to visit.

Walking within Skeletons: Dinosaurs Coming!” is a permanent exhibit at the Land Bank Exhibition Hall. It has fossils, skeletons and many specimens that will awe the whole family - kids and adults. It is fascinating and even my 11 year old would read all the information that accompanied the different displays. This exhibit is not free, but very inexpensive. Kids... More
