The clothes that he used, including his Military uniform. His everyday clothes showed how thrifty he was as he liked stitching torn parts and refused to purchase new clothes.

His cars! He has 2 Cadillacs displayed here, one is given by the overseas chinese in the Philippines which he only used ONCE as it was “too heavy”.

My favourite part is the replica of CKS’ Office. Everything, even the books’ arrangement, paintings, is exactly how he used to arrange them.

Taipei Time and museum

This was the original winding clock in his office which, mysteriously, stopped on the same time as his death on April 5, 1975.

Taipei Metro Train and subway transportation

The Chiang Kai Shek Memorial Hall is very accessible as well so there’s no reason that you’ll miss visiting this Popular Tourist Landmark in Taipei when you’re in town. It has its own station along the Xindian Line of the Taipei MRT Network.
