  • 這是台灣東部唯一的國家級博物館,位於台東縣台東市,以台灣史前文化及台灣原住民文物收藏為主,該館的建築設計是經由國際競圖選出,是為一時之選,參訪完畢還可順遊西邊的卑南文化公園. 
  • 台東地大,景點也比較分散,史前文化博物館是在市區,但也是要搭巴士或騎、開車才能到。館場內外空間寬廣,古物展覽、文化解說、遊憩區,很適合來趟知性之旅。 
  • 這是很重要有關台灣史前文化的博物館,強烈建議一定要預約導覽行程,會比自己看來得有趣太多了! 專業的導覽員可以告訴你這些文物背後的故事還有台灣的歷史,兼具教育意義的好地方,旁邊還有一間西餐廳可以去試試看唷!

  • 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 .!
