    It's best to visit either immediately after the opening time or an hour before closing to avoid the rather massive crowd!

    Best collection of authentic Chinese artifacts in the world. The paintings and calligraphy are mostly imperial collection from the Qing Dynasty. You can see chops of those emperors affixed to them.

    Amazing! Go early if you don't like crowds. Lots of tour groups from different countries. I like to jump in & out of the different tours while walking around. The Japanese groups are really energetic.

    Lots of history in one place. Can't take pictures inside and usually there's many groups of Chinese tourists, so prepare yourself to spend a couple of hours to make sure to check everything. A must go

    Visit evenings (extended hour days only) and avoid the large tour groups. Also note the famous cabbage is sometimes moved to other branch.

    A handbag/purse/wallet with 2 straps like a backpack--no matter how small--must be left at the coat-check or locker. But a purse/handbag--no matter how large--with only 1 strap, you may keep with you.

    If you are visiting this place with a tour group, I highly suggest you break away and tour this place alone. At least you won't get stuck with the horde of rude Mainland Chinese.

    If you need a break from fighting the crowds, take the elevator to the Tea Room on the 4th floor. Beyond tea, they have Dim Sum and desserts – plus sometimes live music. Pricing isn't unreasonable.

    반드시 하루종일 일정을 할애해서 보셔야 합니다. 정말 아름다운 작품들이 많습니다. 오디오기이드 한국어를@대여해서 천천히 감상하며 하루를 보내세요. 나가서 정원과@호수도 감상하세요. 입장료는 별도입니다. 보고나면 다른 박물관은 좀 초라해보입니다. 훌륭합니다

    좋긴한데 꽃보다 할배에 나온 것처럼 우와~싶은건 별로 없다. 많은 전세계의 박물관미술관을 다녀서인지 유명세에 비해선 좀 아쉽게 느껴졌다. 그래도 대만 타이페이를 와서 이곳을 들리지 않는다면 안된다. 반드시 오픈 시간에 맞춰 들어가서 3층부터 훑으면서 내려오기를 권한다.
