Was sightseeing in Taipei and this was on my list. The highlight of my visit, other than learning a great deal of history re: Sun Yat Sen, was the changing of the guard that occurs 50 minuets past the hour, every hour. Definitely worth seeing, and you could easily breeze through this in <1 hour. It's quite close to Taipei... More

Get some history on this great man, and watch the changing of the guards. A great place to spend a few hours looking and reading up on some history of Taiwan. Recommended.

Nice place to visit, and can see the guards changing shift. A good place to learn about the history of Taiwan.

Memorial hall with statue to Sun Yat Sen, founder of Democratic China in the early 20th century. Time your visit to see the changing of the guard, then visit the exhibition hall within the memorial. How long you spend at the memorial is up to you and what you want to see - could be a short walk through (30... More

We were staying at the nearby Grand Hyatt and took a short, 10-minute walk to visit the Memorial Hall. The Hall itself is quite beautiful and there is a nice exhibition detailing Sun Yat Sen's three trips to Taiwan and his influence on Taiwan's National spirit. If you time your visit just before the top of each hour, you can... More

Must be visited, especially if you're already in the Taipei 101 area. Accessible by train with a Sun Yat Sen station right in the premises of the memorial hall. Entrance for free. Do time your visit for the changing of the guards which is done every hour until 5pm. Visit also the gift shop. Lots of souvenirs which can only... More

Wanted to have a stroll after days in the office. Taiwanese colleague recommended that I give this place a visit. Had a very relaxing stroll within the vicinity (outside the main exhibit hall). The exhibits in the hall are also very interesting. Well worth a visit.

What a nerve racking experience to watch these fine young well dressed young soldiers doing their thing. Every hour they march in honor of their now dead SAN yat sen. The rest of the gallery is great to see as there are many art exhibitions and activities to see. Good station stop and near the DaAn area which offers great... More

The Sun Yat Sen Memorial Hall is a must-see for its hourly changing of the guard, which takes military pomp and precision to new, breathtaking heights. This elaborate, but mathematically tight, ceremony almost takes on the air of a dance as the half-dozen guards in their mirror-shone garb stomp, spin, and do their highly ritualistic thing wielding their weapons. I've... More

English language pieces of the museum allowed me to understand the history and development of this nation under Dr. Sun Yat Sen
