  • 已經錯過這裡好幾次,所以決定在離開台東市的當天上午一定要先來這裡拜訪。沒想到唯一合適的大眾交通工具竟然是一早七點半的客運。八點到園區之後,幸好戶外場地非常大,而且有良好的設計與照顧,所以慢慢逛、拍照,竟然也就花了一個小時,剛好九點進館參觀。 館方安排了很多場,為時僅半小時的免費小型導覽。很推薦大家參加。  more »
  • This museum is pretty confusing by the on-design of the building. To achieve the "Prehistory" section, follow a course presenting the evolution of man, didactic but not necessarily the purpose of the visit. Some pieces however deserve that one stop: jewelry, a megalith tombs for example.

  • 館內除了固定的常態展覽,也會不定期有不同主題的展覽,石器時代以生動活潑的方式呈現,讓我彷彿置身原始人的生活,這裡也非常適合家庭出遊,二樓除了周一公休以外,幾乎每天都有不同的手作活動可以讓小朋友體驗,不只眼看展覽,也可自己做一個紀念品,史前館真的是一個具有教育意義的地方,而除了館內,我也非常推薦史前館的後花園,有遊樂區、迷宮、裝置藝術,更有固定時段的水舞秀,真的是一個很棒的地方啊!!  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 .!
