This is where you'll find arguably the finest collection of Chinese art. Don't miss the important items "One Hundred Horses" painting and the "Jadeite Cabbage." Open daily from 8:30am to 6:30pm.
Go straight to 301 to check out the meat shaped stone and jade cabbage, two of the most well known pieces in the museum. Avoid weekend tour groups by going on an early weekday.
This is hands down the finest collection of Chinese art and artifacts in the world. If you're pressed for time, start on the 3rd floor where the best stuff is. And if you need a break, the teahouse...
Treasures of Chinese art history. Nothing more to say. Except, they sometimes replace the greatest paintings with posters rather than the original work. #Fail
World class museum with the best Chinese treasures! They run it well with good design of space, lighting, sound and AV technology
It is a must to visit this silk museum- one can see for himself how silk products are made from. It is also a good chance to buy silk quality products like silk comforter, silk pillows, silk garments.
A pretty interesting museum with well laid out exhibits and free admission. It was a rainy day when we visited and it wasn't very busy. The grounds are also beautiful - pack a picnic and spend a few hours. We were there during QingMing so a few buildings were closed, but still lots to see. Even my girls, 11 & 7 found interesting things and learned about silkworms. A short drive to other attractions.Be aware that it is on a one-way road (or at least while we were there) so taxis may have to go all the way around a ring road which will add a few RMB to the trip, or you can get dropped off as close as you can and walk 15-20 min.
A nice and well-run operation. Presenting silk garments from years ago. Provide and opportunity to purchase warranteed scarfs, ties and more. Sells silk blankets - feather-light and extra warm at a decent price
Last year I had the privilege of being able to spend a few hours at the National Silk Museum in Hangzhou. The museum was built especially to illustrate China's great heritage of silk textiles. The interactive exhibitions explain the life of the silk worm and the making of the cloth. However the most amazing articles which were on display were silk textiles around 2000 years old. These fabrics still retained the colour and clearly seen designs of the weaving demonstrating the advanced technology the early Chinese had obtained. Looms and spinning wheels showed the equipment these beautiful were made on. These are amazing in themselves. It is a beautiful museum which is well worth a visit. Allow some time to absorb the exhibits
This place is so wonderful and I am glad that the Chinese treasures are well maintained here and being put on a good show. I will make it a point to spend half a day here everytime I come Taipei!
