National Taiwan Museum asks for a minimum fee in the entrance. After paying, you will earn the pass for National Taiwan Museum and the Land Bank Exhibition Hall. With regard to the National Taiwan Museum, it is relatively smaller than the National Palace Museum (so you might want to visit this one before the latter). However, its exhibit does not... More

While the 3rd floor is being reworked, the valuable stone exhibit is very good explaining the science behind these valuable minerals and has nice displays of gems,exquisite pieces of jewelry and other finished objects. There is also a special exhibit of thin stone slices that artists worked with in finding the exact location to slice a plane in the rock... More

Much of the museum was closed for renovations. An exhibit on the stones of Taiwan, which were quite beautiful, and one small area on wildlife. Large sections closed off but only 30NTD entry so no big deal.

Entrance fee NT$30 or you can use your Easycard to pay for it. Displays Taiwan's heritage and history. Well kept and maintained.

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

I went to Taiwan for nearly 30 times since 2008. Shamefully, before my latest visit in February 2017, I had never been to the National Museum of Taiwan in the old downtown of Taipei, the capital city. The entrance ticket is TWD30 which allows you to enter the Main Hall and the historical "Land Bank Museum". The displays at the... 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
