What do we do for the public?
The “public service white paper” is our presentation to all nationals, showing our endeavor to enhance the service quality, performance, hospitality and trust.

Our service concept:
The National Dr. Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall was built to commemorate the centenary birthday of Dr. Sun Yat-sen, open on May 16th 1972, originally under the Department of Education of Taipei City Government, transferred to the Ministry of Education together with Yangmingshan Chung Shan Hall as a part of its social education organizations, then transferred again to the Ministry of Culture on May 20th 2012 in coordination with government reconstruction, including its eight divisions: General Planning, Research and Acquisition, Exhibition Planning, Theater Management, Cultural Education Promotion, Electrical Engineering, Personnel and Accounting.

Our object is to propagate, collect, study and exhibit Dr. Sun Yat-san’s ideas, relics and historical records. Apart from the cordial reception, historical displays, cultural and artistic exhibitions, performances and educational activities, we also renew software and hardware, intensify  studies and expand the service of cultural, artistic and lifelong education in order to adapt to societal changes throughout these years.

For the promotion of Sunology, staff hold the service concept of “satisfying all visitors”, the core value of “initiative, innovation, quality and effectiveness”, the vision of “forming a knowledge organization and high-performance team” and the target of being more “cosmopolitan, diversified, scientific, enterprising, elaborate and localized”. Furthermore, we upgrade our environment, provide attentive service and reach toward the balance between academic research and cultural, artistic, educational and recreational function under the new museum management concept.

Our services:
We provide several thousand square meters of elegant exhibit spaces with up-to-date equipment such as the Auditorium (Performance Hall), Chungshan National Gallery, Yat-sen Projecting Room, Lecture Hall, Chung Shan Lecture Hall, Library, Leisure Spaces and Chung Shan Park. Apart from some performances in the Auditorium and some international blockbusters, most displays are free. Our sincere services include:
