We arrived an hour before closing so we only had a chance to visit the main exhibition and not the special one. Fortunately their ticket prices are different and the main exhibits were on the cheaper end. The space is small - expect to spend less than an hour - but they have three floors of exhibits covering astronomy, superconductors,... More

Visited here during our stay in Taichung as my partner had fond childhood memories of visiting here. The museum is good fun, with lots of interesting exhibitions celebrating Chinese scientific history as well as your usual array of exhibits for dinosaurs, animals, anthropology, etc. For mandarin readers, there shouldn't be any issues but I was really disappointed by the inconsistent...

In different duration, there will be different theme of special exhibition, you may check on official website to know further. Besides, there's also a theater you may watch short film and 3D...

Huge museum with beautiful exhibits depicting animals and teaches you about different categories such as history, science. Love the dinosaur exhibits and the life science museum. Forget about the mini zoo as it is really small and showing mainly fishes. Very baby friendly with nice staff who help to navigate and watch over the breastfeeding room. Must go for families...

I am extremely pleased with this institution. I am an elderly scientist with 14 degrees including 2MAs and 2 PhDs. I found myself running around in the museum because there are so much to see! The Elephant Fossil was most impressive, reminds me of the Dinosaur Fish at the Maldive Museum. The staff is very courteous. There is waiver of... More
