National Museum of Taiwan History reviews
It’s under redevelopment at the time of writing and is set to reopen in July 2020. We paid NTD30 each for access to two small exhibitions: one on textbooks, and the other on Shōjo Manga in Taiwan... more »

We enjoyed our visit and liked the museum. I visited with my wife, and mother in law who is on the wheelchair. Unfortunately, the parking lot has some distance away from the main building. It will be nice to have some handicap spaces closed to main building. The open area is still needed some improvement and work. It looks like still under construction. We liked the layout and contents of all displays. It match our expectation about Taiwan history. The children section looks very interesting and hand on. I would recommend to visit this place to anyone. Good job.
Large museum in Tainan, so spacious! The sign made of solar panels is very striking! Many people come for photos! It has become a landmark of the city. It gets a wide lawn around the building, which serves as a public area for visitors to play and rest. Parking is convenient here. The museum's route is well designed, and it is an enjoyment to see exhibition inside the air-conditioned chambers!
