  • It's perfect for children to go to places of exploration, but because of the long history of the museum, the hard-core inside is very old, many of the photos displayed are very obvious to see a very ageful feeling, I hope this aspect can be improved. In addition, the museum has different special exhibitions that fit the children before.

  • Taichung Natural Science Museum has always been one of the most visited places i've ever come to Taiwan, and it's a real shock to see the complete fossil model of fear placed in the museum display, and it's a really shocking feeling for a little boy who's happy and afraid! Even now can be considered uncle familiar man's years, but also will want to re-visit, in addition to that do not know to see the horror show, the other parts of it are always updated, every time there will be new discoveries. Need to pay for the additional set of the stand and space is to see the release of the film their own joy, just play the video and the movie feeling is more than push ingested space, the stand is 3D shadow, than not unique! Push everyone up and hang out.

  • I've been to a few national museums around the world and they have all ensured that all exhibitions are multi lingual to cater to the majority of tourists. While I'm not suggesting for a second that English speaking tourists make up the majority of visitors, they will still account for a significant portion so when only a few exhibits have bilingual descriptions then it's difficult to fully enjoy the museum. I was impressed with the exhibit on human life which was bilingual. Seems as though the newer exhibits are bilingual and the older ones are only in Chinese. Building was quite outdated but that's only a small thing. A lot of families with small children.
  • This is a very clean and well maintained science museum. A great place to take children for a day out. Many restaurants to choose from walking distance from the museum, should you not want McDonald's. Friendly and helpful staff throughout. If you have children and go to museums often, consider membership. The membership is NT200 (NT50 more than adult admission) and can be used not only for admission to this museum, but also discounted entry into other museums island wide. Be sure not to miss the exhibits on B1 in the main building- some fun hands on exhibits for children. There is also a discovery area for children of younger ages in the attached building opposite the main entrance.
