  • It's a great place to take a picture. While the camp is only 5:30, it's still very well worth the photo shoot.

  • A amazing museum!!!! Many different types of collections but they did it all perfect!!! My favorite it the weapons in middle age. They are too beautiful. Also animals specimens and printing are both amazing. I may spent all day here. Best museum in ASIA!!!!
  • This museum is totally beyond my expectation. The collection is so rich that it could take a full day to visit. Besides, the outside garden occupies a huge land and it is beautiful. We spent three hours inside and could not finish all. Definitely, we will visit again. The only downside is it is a western style museum located in the countryside of Taiwan, a little bit strange.
  • Loved every second of my visit. I do recommend allocating at least 3 to 4 hours if you plan on visiting to truly indulge and enjoy the exhibitions. Its sad how descriptions of the exhibits are only available in mandarin, more english translations would certainly help tourists
  • Well maintained, very big art museum with many exhibition. Prepare to spend few hours here if include surrounding parks. Ticket price is reasonable.
  • Feels like you are back to the Roman Empire era. A nice historical collection with detailed explanation. Be prepared to stand and walk much until you there museum part to the café. Great gift shop!
