    to appreciate many collectible items or many collections...

    There are many collectible items worth your "appreciating/appreciation" in the Chimei Museum.
    Between "appreciating" and "appreciation", which should I choose? Is this sentence correct?

    I wouldn't use either. I would use "interest" in both cases.

    I agree with MikeNewYork that a form of "appreciate" is not the best choice. However, only "appreciation" is correct in your sentences.
