This is not by any means a U.S. type of museum, it's very spread out with not a lot to see. it's not expensive, so if you're bored, it's worth a quick trip. Very kid friendly.

Mediocle. A major update is needed. I'd recommend the museum of science in Taichung, which is more comprehensive.

I lived by this museum when I was based in Taiwan with my family, good for a day out with the family but can become busy on the holidays.

Our family have visited more than 10 science museums all over the world. This one in Taichung is definitely attractive. A major portion of it focuses on the development of the earth and living things over the past millions and billions of year. Very interactive...More
