  • Taiwanese friends took me here with their young children. Plenty of things to keep the children interested and occupied. They specially loved the dinosaur exhibits especially their movements and sound...  more »
  • Is very early in the establishment of the museum, the introduction of many natural sciences of the science of science, including biological and natural environment, but also because of the establishment of a longer time than, part of the exhibits than, the side has been keeping up to date, not the most push special exhibition, the special exhibition of the museum has been very strong .

  • I've been to a few national museums around the world and they have all ensured that all exhibitions are multi lingual to cater to the majority of tourists. While I'm not suggesting for a second that English speaking tourists make up the majority of visitors, they will still account for a significant portion so when only a few exhibits have bilingual descriptions then it's difficult to fully enjoy the museum. I was impressed with the exhibit on human life which was bilingual. Seems as though the newer exhibits are bilingual and the older ones are only in Chinese. Building was quite outdated but that's only a small thing. A lot of families with small children.
  • This is a very clean and well maintained science museum. A great place to take children for a day out. Many restaurants to choose from walking distance from the museum, should you not want McDonald's. Friendly and helpful staff throughout. If you have children and go to museums often, consider membership. The membership is NT200 (NT50 more than adult admission) and can be used not only for admission to this museum, but also discounted entry into other museums island wide. Be sure not to miss the exhibits on B1 in the main building- some fun hands on exhibits for children. There is also a discovery area for children of younger ages in the attached building opposite the main entrance.
  • I've been to better places. There needs to be more English information here if they were to attract foreigners. This place is very spacious with lots of exhibits. There is only one restaurant - McDonald's. I reckon there needs to be a better variety of food. But I know it's hard to run a business if there isn't enough customers. The people here are very friendly and helpful.
  • Our daughter loves the museum. It has great exhibits and is so large you need multiple trips to see it all.
  • Huge educational fun park. Best to get membership at start to get discounts for all exhibitions, events. Very limited parking, must get there early to park or catch the bus/taxi. Great restaurants near by. Definitely need several full days to finish all exhibitions on show. Must go place for Taichung
