Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall

Flanked by traditional Chinese gardens and national cultural halls, this impressive memorial honors one of the world’s most important 20th-century leaders.

The striking Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall is dedicated to the military and political leader who led the Chinese Nationalist government as president from 1950 through 1975. Discover the history of Chiang Kai-shek and China in the 20th century through photographs, drawings and the stunning architectural design of the memorial hall.

The elegant building is set within 62 acres (25 hectares) of gardens and walkways and is constructed from white marble and a blue tiled roof against a red background. These three colors represent the national flag and the values of freedom, brotherhood and equality. Climb the 89 steps leading up to the museum; each step symbolizes a year in Chiang Kai-shek’s life. Inside, admire military memorabilia, medals and uniforms. Chinese characters on the walls represent Chiang Kai-shek’s political values of ethics, democracy and science. 

See the long bulletproof Cadillacs that Chiang Kai-shek rode in. Look in the main hall for the most impressive feature, a grand bronze statue of Chiang Kai-shek sitting in a chair, solemnly guarded by soldiers. If you time your visit for the top of the hour, you can watch the impressive ceremony of the changing of the guard. 

Outside the memorial, relax in some of Taipei’s best gardens and courtyards. Listen to the waterfalls and walk through traditional Chinese gardens and over ornamental bridges. Visit the Yunhan and Guanghua ponds, whose names represent the Restoration of China. Walk through the square past Taiwan’s huge National Opera House and National Concert Hall. Browse the area’s art galleries, libraries, shops and restaurants. On the weekends enjoy outdoor art exhibitions and musical performances or book a ticket at the Concert Hall to see world-class musicians, dance, theater and other cultural events.

Set aside a day at the memorial to fully immerse yourself in Taiwan’s cultural and political history. Open daily, Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall is easily accessible via city bus or by taking the MRT train to Memorial Hall Station.
