National Palace Museum

National Palace Museum

Those who want to soak up some Chinese culture in serious style will be awed by the vast collection of ancient artefacts and artwork held in Taipei's National Palace Museum. The collection forms the bulk of what was once on display at the Forbidden City in Beijing, moved to Taipei as a result of the Chinese Civil War. Recently re-opened after extensive renovations, the museum houses some world-famous exhibits like the 'Jade Cabbage' (a piece of jade carved to resemble a cabbage head), and a valuable copy of the Qingming Scroll.
