  • This is a must if you are in town. This is not your average countryside hotel. It is a huge place, amazing investment, very modern, great garden, you need a good half day to explore. My family enjoyed...  more »
  • The museum is huge with many installations, artefacts of the vast cultures of Taitung City, coupled with music, climate, rock pieces etc. It is a little far from Taitung City so you might have to plan...  more »
  • We felt that the exhibits lacked depth of material. It was geared towards younger kids but as adults it was not interesting enough. It cannot compare with museums in larger cities.

  • Learn about geology formation of taiwan today. I always wonder why the east cost beach has such a colour and I found the answer here. It worth a visit. However, I was told by the usher that the price of their cafe is not expensive. So I took a look and found it was a lie. It is okay if higher price with quality. But I think I just had a worst milk tea I had tried in Taiwan.
  • Plenty too see. Will take hours seeing all parts of the museum. Great place to take your kids for learning about the pre-historical artifacts and knowledge. Museum is well organized and designed. Highly recommended.
  • Nice, I found out few interesting things about aboriginal culture in history.
  • This was an interesting museum to explore with quite a few exhibits about Taiwan's native cultures and history. Unfortunately only some of the exhibits featured English translations. Very local, not an international level museum.
  • That place is amazing . Modern museum , interactive activities and instructive games. You must stop by there if you visit Taitong .!
