  • 國立臺灣史前文化博物館,是國內第一座以史前和原住民文化為主題的博物館,也是第一座包含博物館、考古遺址和自然生態公園的博物館,更是東海岸第一座國家級的博物館。花個半天時間對台灣史前文化知識可增長很多,很值得參觀。

  • 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 .!
