  • Could have been a good museum but a few is translate. The small part translated are without interest. There is a lot of people working in the museum but no one is able to speak English. The worst is t...  more »
  • Regardless of religion, the World Museum of Religion is open to everyone. Collections are so rich that it is interesting to know the special features of the various religions and to makes the events of Taiwan.

  • I visited this museum due to the positive comments, but it really is overrated. There’s only 1.5 floors, about 10-15 display items per religion x 10 religions. The 1.5 floors including 2x10 min boring...  more »
  • What they have is laid out nicely, and the staff are very nice. However, if you are someone who is interested in religions, chances are, you will find that most of the information presented there is basic. There is no attempt to dwell into anything that is even remotely controversial. Religions covered: Christianity, Budhisam, Islam, Hinduism, Zoroastrianism, Sikhism, and Shinto. Also covered are the ancient Egyptian religion and Mayan religion. Constructive criticism: It is hard to read some of the explanations because of the angle (some times you have to kneel on the floor to read), and the dim lighting doesn't help either.
  • Where else in the world do you find an organisation that tries to showcase the Religions of the World. Such a loving effort. Many groups of young students are also exposed to the varied varieties of religious beliefs.
  • Detailed and all around information and exhibitions for the major religious, a delightful surprise to visit. The interactions are good too.
  • Decent English signage and good coverage of major religions with no apparent bias, despite being run by a particular religious organisation. Worth the visit.
  • Excellent vegetarian restaurant. Some of the minor exhibits do not have English translation. It has a section with models of major religious sites which was pretty good! Regular price is $150 NT which I think is pretty fair since it's a pretty special museum to advocate religious diversity. There is a children's section for $80 or $200 for both that I didn't check out. There is a video on creation myths. Pretty cool to learn about different religions!
