    This place is really cool and amazing! I love the different exhibitions here and the dino park. The cinema is awesome too. I also think this place is perfect for relaxing and learning stuff without going online!!

    This is such a treasure to this city. You see kids learning inside and adults conjure up their childhood memories. Thanks to this establishment, there are tons of exotic diners nearby. I'm willing to bring my kids here every weekend.

    Science Museum - Great place to bring family, both inside and around it. There are 3D movie theaters, Dinosaur exhibits and many other science related areas. The park around it is also suitable for picnics.

    This museum has many different parts. Each parts is different. There is a part that people can go in for free. The other parts must pay for the entrance ticket. Ticket's price for each parts are different. I pay 70NT (use student card, normal price is 100NT). This price is really worth it. Because the museum is very big at has many different section related to science (including: medical, agricultural, astronomy, human being, animals, plants, etc). Unfortunately each things descriptions is only in chinese. Only a few of those has english.

    Interesting place for families, with free science center, 3D theater and space museum. It is along the green corridor and you can walk all the way to the other end, with galleries along the way.
