Chimei Museum Reviews
A private museum- with impressive collection of a) weapons b) musical instruments- especially violins c) paintings. among others The museum building is an europian style one- very few found in Taiwan.... more »
博物館占地很大，可以運動散步，小朋友也可以盡情的嘻戲，草地上的裝置藝術也別有一番風格，假日戶外常有不同的活動，門前的噴水池整點會啟動，館內參展是禁止拍照的，常態展的東西很豐富，可以見識很多時代不同的產物，建議借個導覽耳機，可以慢慢觀看，理解事物，也是個很好的學習地方。 more »The museum covers a very large area, can walk, children can also love the hip-hop, the grass on the set of the room also has a bit of a style, the holiday outside often have different activities, the pool in front of the whole point, the exhibition is forbidden to take pictures, often the exhibition is very rich, can be a lot of different generations of different products, build a loan , you can slowly look at, understand things, is also a good place to learn.
A private museum that have display of animals, weapons, musical instruments among others. Do take note that you are not allowed to take pictures in the display areas. There's a outdoor cafe that have sittings for you to enjoy your coffee and light snacks. Please allows at least half a day to walk through the various displays. There's also audio guide in different language that you can rent for a minimum sum of money. Highly recommended.
It's a great feeling when something is even better than the photos. Inside is excellent also, and it cost 280 NTD each for the general galleries + temporary exhibition (bought separately 200 each). Expect queues at the cafe and higher than normal, although not extortionate, prices. I tried their "plum cola coffee" and was an unlikely but immediate fan. There is a great souvenir shop too. I would even recommend taking a look here first if you're hoping to make a purchase so that you can then go and view the real thing. Can't recommend enough. The most beautiful and intriguing museum I've been to.
