  • The museum's regular show, which showcases many of the basic concepts of science, is best suited to the students in the textbook, which can be seen through graphics, models, videos ... In such a way that the basics of science and education are easier to close, and the occasional theme of the special exhibition is also suitable for this access to different areas of knowledge; The living space outside the library is often the leisure space nearby or for people to visit.

  • Underground parking, restrooms, etc. Visit the Studio Ghibli animation exhibition, exhibition goes smoothly, real sculptures, Super eyes, can't open Flash and video phones can take pictures, but for schools, so have fun, go home, Miyazaki's work See it again before stopping.

  • An equivalent of Taiwanese of the Museum of American life of Washington. A little of everything and nothing mixed as good from the bad. A lot of didactic museum pieces are broken or inoperationnelles and date really. (You can avoid the aeronautical part & space directly!) There are also many Chinese and not translated in English... so not top... Dispensable...

  • 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 space for little kids.We visited north musium only. But some device and attraction are broken. At toy shop, staff observed us all time. I couldn't understand why she did that. Was she considering that we gonna cheat staff? I wonder.
  • a likeable and interesting museum but: 1) lots of descriptions not in english (esp. mechanical stuff) 2) some exhibitions are unfinished with the demonstration things not being usable 3) the restaurant is dated, food and drinj are not good quality. the Latté coffee was awful despite these, its very informative. 4 hours is not enough, more like 5-6 would be needed. fee=100$, CLOSED mondays.
  • A fantastic children's science museum. Each exhibit was full of hands-on activities.
  • So Much to see and do. Great place for kids - adventure playground, playroom as well as lots of interactive exhibits

To keep things simple and easy, take a look at the options close to Formosa Boulevard, the station where the two metro lines intersect.
