Museum of the Institute of History and Philology (中研院歷史語言研究所歷史文物陳列館)

  • Website: https://museum.sinica.edu.tw/en/
  • The collection of the museum primarily consists of artifacts from archaeological excavations in China, supplemented with artifacts later found during field research in Taiwan. Unlike conventional “showpiece” museums or the personal collections of scholars, these objects were collected primarily for academic research, including stone, bone, shell, ceramic, jade, bronze artifacts, wooden slips, and paper archives. The collection covers Chinese history from the Paleolithic Period to the Ming and Ching imperial periods, and modern times. As for regional variety, the majority of the pieces originated in China, others are from Europe or Taiwan (*Image sourced from the museum website).

Inspired by bamboo, its design blends traditional Asian elements with modern engineering. The observatories on the 89th and 91st floors offer stunning views. Beyond its height and architecture, this building is a hub of activity, featuring offices, restaurants, and shops, and is famous for its impressive New Year's Eve fireworks, drawing millions each year (*Image sourced from: https://www.pexels.com/zh-tw/search/%E5%8F%B0%E5%8C%97101/ and
