  • Many famous National Museum, is wide. Visited was allowed in free of charge event or something. There are also facilities can experience many earthquakes. (Charges apply) I think if young kids can play all day long.

  • The good place to bring the children, in addition to the summer has free of cold can blow, but also to learn science knowledge, there are some indefinite course, so that children recognize science, it is great!

  • 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!

  • Was hoping to see a lot more futuristic and ground breaking science and technology exhibits, but most were history of science and technology. Not a bad half day trip for families as there are many activities for kids to enjoy. Some exhibits are showing their age and general maintenance is lacking in some areas. Tip: go early or after lunch as many activities are not available between 12 and 2pm.
  • Great place to take your kids to walk around. As far as the museum go, i guess I'm just not into that sort of stuff. That's why i rate it at 3. But maybe you are. Worth to check up if you're into museums.
  • 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 The museum may have some outdated technology, but it's still fun for kids.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.
