With jade-green tiled roofs and yellow walls that loom dramatically out of a mountain valley north of downtown Taipei, the museum holds one of the largest collections of Chinese artifacts and artwork in the world, including the famous Jade Cabbage—a piece of jade carved to resemble a head of cabbage—and a boat carved out of an olive pit.
