  • An unique, underrated, and important museum regarding the history and geography of Taipei and Taiwan. Tucked inside the Taipei City Hall. Interactive exhibits, free admission, and a scale model of Zhongshan N./S. Road (I think).
  • Nice exhibition. It is not often shown by the tourist guides but it is actually quite good. It mainly focuses on Taipei and it's surrounding. It is quite easy to spend 1 or 2 hours depending of your interest. It's a bit tricky to find the entrance but just ask the from desk information.
  • A cute exhibit hidden in Taipei City Hall. Good place to learn how Taipei gets started.
  • Good museum for Taipei
  • Small museum. Has interactive items. Free entrance.
