Are you turning completely Taiwanese on us, Omni?

Is it permitted to take photographs inside, or where you granted special permission to do so because you were writing about it?
Are there good parking and eating facilities at the museum?

Shopping in the gift store?

The exhibits gave a great overview of Taiwanese history, without glossing over the unpleasant bits. Pro-greens in general will tend to minimise the nasty side of the Japanese era, while pro-blues will stay quiet on 2-28 and the White Terror, but the museum steers clear of both of these pitfalls by treating everything pretty even-handedly. Obviously they can't cover every single incident (there is no mention of the French blockade of 1885, for example), but what is there reflects the sweep of the island's history very well. We also talked to a knowledgable member of staff who mentioned that they see very few "foreigners" there, which is a real shame. If you want a good introduction to Taiwanese history, a couple of hours following the exhibits round is a great way to do it.
