  • 可以花上一個下午在這,有許多不同的展區,很精彩。 重點是有很多恐龍,還有動作,可以拍上很多照片。 也有小電影可以看。 不過假日附近不好停車 
  • 這次帶小朋友出遊到這個景點, 裡面有許多新奇的東西特別是像,恐龍小朋友特別喜歡 ,附近也有許多不同的館別,幾乎可以在這裡待上一天的時間。 
  • 除了一般博物館的靜態參觀性質,園內還有立體劇場、環境劇場、太空劇場...等動態展場,非常值得全家大小一遊,寓教於樂的好場所。 
  • A great place to bring the kids. I recall that admission is free on Wednesday morning, but expect the place to be packed with kindergarteners if you're planning to come on a Wednesday. It's worth getting a family card if you're planning on coming more than twice a year. It only costs something like NT$200. The two gift shops are a good place to pick up some "edutainment" type toys and games for kids. The one at the back sells coffee and cake and some very cool-looking fossils with price tags to match. NT$1.6 million was the most expensive one I spotted!
  • The integration of science and nature within this museum area is excellent. This is one of the important reason making it famous and loved by visitors and tourists, especially for thousands and thousands of school kids. The news said that they tried to create a parking lot project here. If the parking lot is once built here, they will destroy this wonderful and excellent museum for ever. That is, the fame of this excellent educational science museum will go down deeply.
  • The museum seemed outdated and was a let down. There are some aspects that were interesting for the young kids, but the majority of it was in Chinese so it was not for a foreigners that does not know the language. It was 100NT for each person for the exhibition and another 100NT for the botanical garden. It also had an IMAX for those who are interested
  • A fantastic place for both kids and adults. Wish I had more time to walk around in the botanical garden.
  • Really enjoyed "Maze between Nature and Art Exhibition" and "The Exhibition of the 30th (bronze wares)." The other not so much..disorganized and confusing.
