  • A good place to teach, for the children of the country and the country to go to, recommend the inside of the theater, and some special exhibitions are also very interesting, like this trip to the "Ancient and modern law doctor and anti-drug" exhibition, a lot of harvest it! If you want to play in Taichung, you can arrange a half-day or a day for a friend who likes to know about sex.

  • Since we love nature Science, the National Science Museum is fully satisfied with my request to enter the museum, there will be free narcotics and law exhibitions to explore additional tickets to the library to get a deeper understanding of science.

  • Interesting but feels aged. The second floor is a little creepy taxidermy haven't but the ground floor dinosaur area is great. Science center is currently free admission and the kids had a great time at the 5th floor Discovery center. Overall good outing and very friendly staff.
  • Some of the exhibits are free so that's good for people who don't want to pay :) however only go for these free exhibits if you have spare time. You're not missing out much by not visiting them.
  • There are staff manning the stations who would explain the scientific phenomenon. It's a huge place, so make sure enough time is allocated for you to enjoy the exhibits.
  • Just ok and almoat no...... big change from as I was kid, its long long time ago. Actually I mean its too old and even oldschool to be good or to be compatable to other museum. Nothimg much fun inside actually.
  • If you don't have a firm grasp of the Chinese language I would not suggest the movies as they are all in Chinese. A lot of the exhibits are in Chinese but those in English are quite informative. I quite enjoyed the dinosaur exhibit. There are many interactive exhibit which I think is a plus. Overall just an ok museum for me
