  • Free entry which is a huge plus here to the museums. It makes sense not to charge citizens to visit museums. It is very refreshing and soothing not having to pay to go into a museum like you do in Vietnam. The museum is clean and very well maintained. Worth a visit.
  • Taiwanese do not make everything into a business model. This is a typical example. This place is not about making a profit out of tourist, this place is about telling a historical important story. The entrance is free and so is the audio tour. Just make sure you bring your own earphones. The English speaking staff will provide you with a QR code which you can scan with your phone and enjoy the tour!
