  • 服務品質從每位工作人員臉上的微笑,立即感受這是一處友善的景點,而不是冷冰冰的博物館。 館外可以遠眺的山巒,襯映東台灣的藍天白雲,已是一幅天然不造假的畫作,偶有列車從樹林間穿梭而過,忽而醒覺這棟遺世獨立的建築物裡,在訴說著台灣古早的故事。 古早的故事,很長很長,需要人們耐心的傾聽。  more »
  • 博物館週一休息,全票80元,介紹史前文化內容豐富,還有台灣島行程的3D投影、台灣玉曾經風光一時,館內有親子互動彩繪、館外有公園溜滑梯、也很適合帶小朋友來!  more »
  • 進入博物館參觀當然是要門票的,免費的是它的園區。有大大的花園(還種植了紅藜麥),迷宮,水舞表演(一天三場,可以先確認時間,兒童遊戲區。孩子們在這裡非常開心!  more »

  • 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 .!
