This lovely building was built by the Japanese and completed in 2019. Visitors can be admitted for a free tour in the morning before 11:30. It is worth it on many levels. The exhibits are informative and interesting. It is a strong statement about Taiwan...More

Advice: Do not take photos near the Presidential palace from the pedestrian walk. If you take photos, the security guards will ask you to stop immediately. There is no "no photo" sign displayed anywhere. Nevertheless, it seems that taking photos is prohibited in that area....More

It is a nice building, with different architecture from the surrounding. Apart from seeing and taking photo, there is nothing much to do.
