I found this Museum interesting, although nowhere near as detailed as I expected. It offers an easy guide to World religions using visuals, models and artefacts without going into many of the divides that have arisen throughout history in each - e.g. the Great Schism in the Catholic/Orthodox religion or the Sunni/Shia divide in Islam. In the gold mosaic part... More

It was the perfect activity for a rainy day! First I got the best (and first) Vegetable-Rice-Lasagne I ever had. I was also offered some free tea for tasting. The water is for free as well. With a satisfied stomach I made my way through the Museum, first the movie than the rest. On the internet the visiting time is... More

This museums is very neat and quite interesting. It is very compact, but offers a lot of information. It provides a great introduction on all the largest world religions. It also carries a great message that the only true religion that unites us all is love. This would be a good place to bring older children to introduce them with... More

I did hang out with my friend here to understand more about Taiwanese culture and history. It was a great time and worth to spend the whole day.

This museum is one of its kind in the world and definitely worth a visit. It is especially eye opening for westerners who were only exposed to monotheistic religions and have an opportunity to widen their horizons and see there's a huge variety of cultures and religions around the world.
