Southern Branch of National Palace Museum/故宮南院

Southern Branch of National Palace Museum is near HSR Chai-yi Station, requiring only 10 minutes of drive.

You can effortlessly get there by riding a bicycle from the HSR. Prior to it's establishment, the land was initially a sugarcane field owned by Taisugar. Sugarcanes used to be the most significant cash crop in Taiwan during the early days.

You can still see large fields of sugarcane on your way to the museum. After coming from HSR Chai-yi Station, go to HSR Blvd and then go to Gu-gong Blvd.

Shortly after you get on Gu-gong Blvd, you'll notice a large black building on the right side behind some woods. That's the Southern Branch of National Palace Museum.
上故宮大道沒多久,你會看到右邊樹林後方,一棟黑色大建築。那就是故宮南院。 54586e9594ea13e8d2780f8b7315e0ca

The NPM (National Palace Museum), Taipei is one of the largest museums in the world and ranked as one of the top museums alongside British Museum, London and Louvre, Paris.

The Southern Branch of NPM is positioned as a museum of Asian culture and arts.

It's somewhat akin to the Musee Louvre Lens, France. Local cultural characteristics, such as the evolution of Chai-yi, Tea Culture and Porcelain, are showcased here during the grand opening exhibition.

Despite the museum's large space compared to the NPM, Taipei, there are only 8 exhibit rooms.
這裡的展覽空間雖然大很多,但和台北故宮相比,展覽房間數卻只有8個。 5f9ce591888450ba507089c1d7ea755e
