What a nerve racking experience to watch these fine young well dressed young soldiers doing their thing. Every hour they march in honor of their now dead SAN yat sen. The rest of the gallery is great to see as there are many art exhibitions and activities to see. Good station stop and near the DaAn area which offers great... More

The Sun Yat Sen Memorial Hall is a must-see for its hourly changing of the guard, which takes military pomp and precision to new, breathtaking heights. This elaborate, but mathematically tight, ceremony almost takes on the air of a dance as the half-dozen guards in their mirror-shone garb stomp, spin, and do their highly ritualistic thing wielding their weapons. I've... More

English language pieces of the museum allowed me to understand the history and development of this nation under Dr. Sun Yat Sen

Sun Yat Sen Memorial Hall is a nice place to visit for free. There is a big statue of Sun Yat Sen inside the Hall. The weather when I traveled there is cold. (I wore jacket).

Wasn't originally planning on going here but since it was near Taipei 101, I decided to go and see two sights. It wasn't as impressive as Chiang Kai Shek Memorial but still nice. There was also a changing of the guards, much like the one at CKS. Tip: Walk towards the front of the memorial towards the main road for... More

Ok, is history since he was the founder of china, so probably for chinese people it would be a must. For me it was ok, the views of Taipei 101 from there were very nice... close by lot of restaurantas and shopping area.

We went here because it was famous and we knew about the changing of the guard which was most impressive. However, they also have many exhibits to review to learn more about the leader and his life and influence. We would recommend this as something to enjoy and learn more about the culture and history. You will find the Taiwanese... More

The exterior is much more peaceful than the packed interior. The grounds include a huge and open space with people exercising, flying kites (even though it's prohibited) and a couple of gardens. It's easy to get to with the metro station named after this landmark (it's a block away from the station and well signed).
