  • Do you love history.... and mannequins? Look no further you have found your museum. Super cool architecture, neat park, lots of accurate history..... and way too many mannequins. The employees and volunteers make this place amazing. Care about history, go to the museum.
  • Great and super helpful volunteers. While the historical perception may be subjective, the hospitality, lay out and interesting sections of the museum are certainly not up to dispute, at all.
  • It's a bit small but for the price well worth the 2~4 hours you can spend there. Highly recommend walking around the grounds outside too.
  • A beautiful museum very playful and cheap. The best I have seen on Taiwan's history !
  • The material is really geared toward junior high school kids. That said, the place does present a comprehensive view of Taiwanese history.
