Destination Details

Taipei, Taiwan

Home to the world's largest and arguably finest collection of Chinese art, this vast collection covers treasures in painting, calligraphy, statuary, bronzes, lacquerware, ceramics, jade and religious objects. Some of the most popular items, such as the famous jade cabbage, are always on display – although check first that it's not on loan to the southern branch in Chiayi. Given the size of the museum's collection, much is on rotation, however.

The historical range at this museum is truly outstanding. Even within a single category, such as ceramics, pieces range over multiple dynasties, and even back to Neolithic times. 

The museum offers free guided tours in English at 10am and 3pm (book online). If you prefer to move about at your own pace, try an English headphone guide.
