  • This place is incredible. The outdoor solar Gathering array is a stunning architectural feature with a uniform welded lattice structure that you can walk through. The incredibly large koi ponds and concrete features are amazing. In truth this museum is worthy of more than a single day. I recommend getting the audio tour as the English explanations are complete and engaging. This is one of those places where you can be surprised at how truly excellent it is. It should exceed even the highest expectation. It is a terrific place for children with plenty of area to run around and ride bicycles. The outside marshlands are efest doomed with a broad array of Taiwanese Birds and egrets.
  • A new-ish museum with amazing dioramas and real life statutes. An intense overview into the history of Taiwan. Need a day or a couple of visits. We didn't make it to the special exhibitions in our 2 hour visit. The grounds are gorgeous... young people with picnics, kite-flying and little kids on tricycles. There is now an onsite gift shop that's delightful. Washrooms are new and clean
  • The permanent exhibits (on the second floor) are excellent. For those who can't speak Chinese well they have a great audio tour in many different languages for a small fee.(you need to request it when you buy the tickets) The museum starts with artifacts from thousands of years ago and ends with Taiwan's high tech boom. Of particular interest to me were the Japanese colonial years and Taiwan's involvement in WWII. Great for history Buffs or anyone looking to learn more about this great country.
  • I didn't get to enter because it was closed on Monday AND WEDNESDAY. Judging from the architecture, I think it's definitely worth another long ride from the city (bus 18 from Tainan Train Station)
  • Great place to visit of you are in Tainan. I enjoyed my afternoon reading about Taiwan's history. The staff were friendly and the breastfeeding room was great when my little one needed to be fed.
