National Museum of History began operation in 1955. For more than six decades, we have been working to provide the most updated and innovative service. Beginning on 2 July 2018, the Museum will be closed for a complete overhaul for about three years. We will renovate and reorganize the museum building, service function, and administration. We aim to provide elevated and enhanced service quality and administrative efficiency when we reopen to the public. “See you again in a promising future.” We apologize for not being able to serve you and your friends in this duration.

I had some time before my late-evening flight and spend a good four-hours enjoying the rich history of Taiwan and the many exhibits that the museum provides to a curious visitor.

The main collection is closed, and only the sculptural exhibit of Lien Pao Tsai and the “reappearance” of the Song Style textiles are exhibited. Nothing historical in this History Museum. Avoid this museum for now.
