  • has been to go the second time, but compared with the summer vacation, I pushed more winter vacation, people are not so much, the weather in Kaohsiung is not so 曬. In the boring, it is not a good time to be in the air, to some head dizzy, especially to the transport. Two times, the feeling is still a lot of exhibition area did not play, it is a good place to go again!

  • I was there for two hours and only managed to see a small fraction of the exhibits. Many of the exhibits are interactive and some are competitive nature . An excellent place to bring children here for...  more »
  • If you are from a small to scientific research, like the children of their own hand work art, to the Kaohsiung Tourist Museum. Every time you come, you will see a number of school teachers bringing students to the class and the side. The small work art, or science toys, always love the hands of the little things, every time there is anticipation and surprise.

  • Good place to bring your kids but I ain't no kid. Therefore it shall be a 3
  • Great place! Very knowledgeable, and the robots in the lobby are very family-friendly! The slide is also very fun! The museum may have some outdated technology, but it's still fun for kids. The hurricane simulator is not only accurate, but our family always insists on going to it. Overall, the museum is a great place for family and mostly kids!
  • It's old and has some dated areas and exhibitions, but its still a wonderful place to take children and have them explore and play around. The entry for is cheap for what you get to see. The special side exhibitions are also a great addition. Recommended trip for a family when the sun is beating down outside.
  • Great for pets! It has a large park surrounding it, and you can bring your dog to play with other dogs. It can be a little crowded on the weekend.
  • Good place to explore science and enjoy a wonderful time with kids
