  • Don't need to allocate too much time here if you're a tourist unless you're a history buff. Great honour and commemorative effort for Taiwan's founder...
  • A good place for those who would like to deepen understanding on Dr. Sun Yat Sen in specific as well as Taiwan history in general. The changing of the guard shift is interesting that takes place every hour until 5:00PM everyday. You may need to double check the operating hour on the website or Google in case of any ad-hoc change in schedule.
  • Memorial Hall of Dr. Sun Yat-Sen. Apart from a historical walkthrough the large building features a free large art gallery which was surprisingly interesting and well presented. At full hour there is guard change which is also recommended to watch.
  • A good place to learn history of revolution of modern China & Taipei. Also changing of guard, it happen every hours ie 10am, 11am, 12pm & so forth. The are also other exibition happening, check on the timetable for events.
