The National Museum of Natural Science is quite interesting. It has all things you expect to find in a science museum - nothing too special or surprising. Nevertheless, still a good place to visit in Taichung. 國家自然科學博物館挺有趣。 它擁有您期望在科學博物館中找到的所有東西 - 沒有什麼特別或令人驚訝的。 不過,仍然是台中的一個好去處。

Very educational and fun or us- and its suitable for all ages. We borrowed two wheelchairs for our elderly parents from the centre and overall the experience here was pleasant for us family :)

One can easily spend an entire morning at the science museum and arboretum and spend less than five American dollars. The museum is nice but the arboretum is pretty spectacular. If you're in Taichung, it's definitely one of the Top Ten things to do.

Not much there inside. And the building is a little tired, need some upgrading. If u happen to pass the area it is okay to take a look. If u made a special trip dont borer.

When I went to this place, I just looking around for about 15 minutes. But from what I see, there a lot of parents that bring their children, so maybe this place is a kid friendly. The admission ticket is free.

Took my 4 kids there last week and it was awful...most of the stuff that you could experiment with or test was broken. It was pitiful. We didn't even stay an hour. A huge waste of time and money.

I coupled the museum with a visit to the botanical gardens across the street. I wish more of the museum's permanent exhibits had English signage, but the rotating exhibits do. The dinosaurs were definitely a highlight of the museum. There's also a theater here, though...More

I wouldn't call this a must-see, but it's good enough to put on the itinerary for a rainy day or super hot day alternative. Quit an extensive exhibit, not just natural science stuff. Section on Chinese medicine particularly interesting. Our kids don't speak or read...More

I visited this museum with my daughter. While there are many different types of exhibits nothing really stood out for us during our visit. For younger children I think it would be a bit more entertaining (the dinosaur exhibits, some hands on exhibits upstairs). We...More

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.
