Memorial area consists of 3 main areas, CKS memorial hall, 2 sides are the National Theater and National Concert Hall. We came there on a rainy day but it is still very crowded. I was impressed by the guard switchboard in the memorial.

The CKS Memorial Hall is a beautiful building even when under repair (as of Jan 2018, still undergoing exterior renovation). It is surrounded by lots of well manicured park-land, as well as three other structures (the elaborate front gate as well as two performance halls)....More

If you're a history buff then you have to visit this place. Having said that, visitors to Taipei should pay this place a visit anyway. The exterior was under renovation but I've been there prior to this trip and I know how beautiful it is.

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.
