We had a great time here although we did not enough time to explore fully. The museum is so interactive with viewers. It is so spacious, nice and informative. It is really a highlight of Taichung.

Most of the displays skewed towards junior high or younger, and not much was interactive; however, the movie in the Space Theater was great. Like being in a planetarium. While the English tour headsets were not helpful in other displays, they were useful in the...More

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.

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.
