  • The Taipei Discovery Museum is open at the Taipei City government's 2 3 4-day holiday, with special exhibitions on display at irregular times. It is now fixed on display in the past life of Taipei City to let you know the Shizhan of Taipei and so on. If you're interested in watching the movie, I am very recommended because he is the concept of the theater, it is very worthwhile to see. If winter feels cold outside. The Taipei Adventure Museum is definitely your best room inside.

  • The visit is a waste of time. The Center extends over 3 floors. In the first, there is a special exhibition, currently on major Asian sports events (photos, shoes, clothing and medals Taiwanese athletes). The town's history through photos and showcases with buttons is explained in the second floor. The pictures are very old fashioned, the buttons don't work. On the third floor, it comes to fora and fauna, also here old pictures and dusty display cases. Many kindergarten and school classes are distracting. The maintainers put in the command tone questions, according to the children in the choir roared answer. I'm sorry one for the little ones, who have to endure this unnecessary noise cooped up in a group.

  • Free museum on 4th floor of Taipei City Hall. Display has a lot of historical background about the city, with English subtitles. There is a 360-degrees movie theater with short (18 minutes) videos about Taipei, also having English subtitles. The theater floor rotates, giving a neat effect.
  • It could very well be Taipei's history museum. It's fascinating to learn about the city's geologic past, its colonial and modern history, the cultural and economic importance of its current districts, and initiatives to make the city more livable. There is a revolving theater showing short films on various aspects of life in Taipei. The exhibits are described in both Chinese and English. Admission is free. Allot at least an hour when visiting. This is one of the few places in the City Hall building that is open on weekends. However, like most museums in the city, it is closed on Mondays.
  • The centres 3rd and 4th floor were very interesting in portraying Taipeis history through displays and interactive. I highly recommend visiting!!!
  • Great effort from taipei city administration, lovely place to visit and lot of fun for kids too
  • A nice free-of-charge historical exhibition located inside the Taipei City Government Hall and a good place to get a basic understanding of Taipei City's historical, economical, and social developments dating back to the late Qing Dynasty. In anticipation of the 2017 Summer Universiade taking place this August, the 2nd floor also features a small exhibit now on Chinese Taipei teams' past achievements and glory on the international stage.
