They love it big in Taiwan! This hall is really massive. To see the iconic landmark and statue of CKS, you have to walk and climb the stairs. It's an easy walk but long. I love the ceilings and details in architecture.

Good for 1 hour. You will be able to see various exhibitions like great calligrapher in Taiwan, Chand Khai Shek;'s life. The exterior of the monument however is having a face lift.

Went during late afternoon and managed to watch the changing of guards ceremony. Its worth your time to watch the 5 soldiers changing guard duty(1 officer and 4 guards). The discipline and time spent on perfecting the display should deserve our few minutes of attention....More

Good to have a stroller to manage the young visitors. However one of the highlights where you can see the change of guards at the main hall, you need to climb a long flight of stairs. No elevators.

Should have mentioned, I think the children will be especially mesmorised by the changing-of-the-guard ceremony.
