National Palace Museum
Home to the world's largest and arguably finest collection of Chinese art, this vast collection covers treasures in painting, calligraphy, statuary, bronzes, lacquerware, ceramics, jade and religious objects. Some of the most popular items, such as the famous jade cabbage, are always on display – although check first that it's not on loan to the southern branch in Chiayi. Given the size of the museum's collection, much is on rotation, however.
