  • 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...  read 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. 
  • 展出的東西比較少 不過博物館本身的硬體設施很不錯 本地遊客很少會過去 一般會過去的都是外地遊客居多 沒去過的遊客可以去體驗一下 東西不多就是了 
  • That place is amazing . Modern museum , interactive activities and instructive games. You must stop by there if you visit Taitong .!
  • As a foreigner living in Taitung, I really enjoy visits to this world-class(y) facility, (believe me, I say this from some knowledge, having constructed Displays in American Museums). We take all our visitors there.
  • Museum informative, quiet, few people. Worth a look if there is interest in local history a little bit.

  • 館藏豐富,認真看大概要花一整天,館區廁所是我這輩子見過最乾淨的公廁,四周造景維護的也不錯,超棒!
  • 整體來說可以認識臺灣東部的史前文化,主要是以卑南文化作為主軸進行介紹。在博物館的規劃或是展演的內容上,可以說是非常細心的!不過礙於環境的關係,在博物館外時可以時常看到成群的蒼蠅.......
