National Palace Museum, Taipei: 34 reviews and 50 photos


A visit to the National Palace Museum is a must. I did it as part of a day trip of Taipei and unfortunately there was limited time there. Few Taxi drivers speak English.

The museum is open 9.00am - 5.00pm daily. English tours were available at 10.00am and 3.00pm (when I was there).

There is more than 600,000 pieces of art and priceless masterpieces housed here - probably the worlds greatest collection of Chinese art. The history of his transit to Taipei is indeed quite a story.
