We went on the dun huang exhibit. It was affordable and provided invaluable insights to the past. It felt like my IQ increased by 20 by the time I finished the exhibit!

Was a big place with lots of exhibition halls. There is also demonstrations along the hallway. My kids enjoyed roaming around and looking at exhibits. Very educational. We also took the opportunity to catch a 3-d show, 45min long. It's in mandarin. Quite funny.

Brief review: - The science museum fits best for kids - Exhibits are a bit old, would be best if they can upgrade everything - The Space Theater can accommodate a huge number of audience, however I expected it to be about space, but it's...More

Went here to see the basic exhibitions and was not disappointed. The entry fee was not bad, 100NTD and the museum was very big, especially the life sciences exhibition which had a good dinosaur exhibit. The Chinese life sciences was also a good draw given...More

Really well laid out and a fantastic experience. The only draw back is that English information is really limited, but still a must see in Taichung.

Big museum, should go with kids. Kids would like very much and gain knowledge as well. Would suggest to spend 1/2 days as many areas need to apply tickets and queue to get inside which took lots of times. Also, not much choice for lunch.

Free entry with lots of educational, yet fun and interesting things for children to do. There are 5 floors with each floor covering a different topic.

At least 1/2 day. We spent 2 hrs there, not enough time. There are lots of queues during exhibition. Need to queue to get a ticket in advance for some of them.

There is a lot of food in the SOGO department store which is close by. However somewhat expensive.
