Armed Forces Museum information
Like weapons and selective retellings of 20th-century military history? Then this museum might be for you. Focusing on the military history of the Republic of China (ROC), the three-storey museum houses artefacts and items ranging from the early days of warlord pacification and the struggle against Japanese invasion to the battle between the Nationalists and communists, and finally into the ROC government's temporary movement to Taiwan. Laminated placards on the wall offer translations into English and Japanese.
