    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.

    Credit cards can only be used for admission ticket. Cash only for audio guide. There's a post office downstairs which offers currency exchange.

    More like a fish market then a museum. Older folks and adults pushing and shoving children to get ahead just to stamp their museum guide! What a shame!

    Impressive treasures. But way to crowded with mainland-Chinese-groups that are loud and annoying and push you around 😑

    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.

    Say what you will, Chiang Kai-shek did a hell of a job packing up this collection and bringing it to Taiwan.

    The finest collection of Art, it's a world class museum with the best chinese treasuries. Crowded by tourist even on a weekday, try avoid weekend tour groups.

    If you need to escape the maddening (and exceedingly noisy) crowds, the 4th floor cafe is a tranquil respite for a tea break. Prices are ok too.

    Very nice museum with some very rare specimens. Or better said unique. I suggest visiting on weekdays to avoid huge crowds that come in on weekends and holidays.

    If only you are interested with chinese history, calligraphy or arts else skip this place. Best to go early at 8.30am to avoid the tourist crowd. Entry fee is TWD160.

    If you want to see the cabbage, wait till lunch time when the groups are gone. If you are with a group, I beg you staying with your group so the rest of us can get a chance to see it during lunch.

    Avoid completely on Sunday unless you want to have to wrestle your way through a nightmarish clusterfuck of loud immobile Chinese tourists.

    don't be afraid to push back on mainlanders who try to push you out of the way to get a better view of the exhibits.

    Crowded beyond belief, even on weekdays in the morning. Massive tour groups make it impossible to enjoy the pieces in the museum. Great museum but poorly run and executed...
