Discover The National Palace Museum Ta´wan

Built in 1965 on the hills north of Taipei, the National Palace Museum is one of the foremost attractions of the capital city, an unmissable site for any visitor to Taiwan. This ultramodern museum, one of the most magnificient on the globe, holds no less than 653,597 works of art (twice the collection of the Louvre museum) covering 5,000 years of Chinese history, from the Neolithic period to the Qing dynasty. This accounts for 75% of the world collection of Chinese art, including the whole gamut of imperial collections. A collection so rich that it changes every three months! The art of Chinese calligraphy, pottery, ivory, figurines, lacquer, paintings, antiquities, statues, bronzeware, arms, cauldrons, jade, ceramics, Buddhas, tapestry, embroidery, rare books and other precious documents are displayed on three floors. The largest Asian art museum on the planet was entirely refurbished recently, leading to a better promotion of its collections via the modernisation of exhibition spaces.
