Regular NTD $250 - General audiencesLocated in Shilin, Taipei, the National Palace Museum is home to one of the largest collections of ancient imperial Chinese artifacts and artwork in the world. With over 700,000 pieces, the museum collection displays over 10,000 years of the Chinese history. Ancient emperors collected most of the pieces found here today. The museum was founded in 1925 in Beijing's Forbidden City, but it was moved to its present location in 1949 when the Republic of China's government relocated. In 1965, it was opened to the public, and many of the most precious artifacts were moved to Taiwan to protect against harm from the Chinese Civil War. The museum has a modern design, and its exhibits are highly technological. It uses Taiwan's National Digital Archives Program to digitally preserve ancient artifacts and improve the overall visiting experience. The National Palace Museum's collection is truly a spectacular sight to see.
