I cannot believe that I spent the whole day there and only saw less than 1/3 of the whole museum. The quality is impressively good and very educational. There are many daily-life applications of technology illustrated. I learned the industrial history of Taiwan and was...More

I was there for two hours and only managed to see a small fraction of the exhibits. Many of the exhibits are interactive and some are competitive nature . An excellent place to bring children here for some fun and learning.

This museum houses many exhibitions, each with its unique ticket office and ticket price. For Ghiblis animation exhibition, the temporary ticket office is somewhere in the middle of the ground floor. This exhibition is good enough for those who are not able to visit Ghiblis...More

My buddy and I went one morning, and it was probably the worst museum experience we've ever had. Poorly funded, organized, and presented.

National Science and Technology Museum is a very interesting place to visit. The lay-out is large and there is a lot to see and experience. The only draw-back is that you have to pay for nearly every separate exhibition.

Big museums with many exhibitions for kids. My kids spent whole day in the museum, but only finished 2/3, and want to stay more. Note: please add more English descriptions.

This is a fairly typical science museum with fairly interesting exhibits. It is quite large, about 5-6 levels with exhibits cateorised by topics. But the few exhibits that my kids were interested in were all under maintenance, e.g. earthquake similator, flight simulator etc. There is...More

A cool museum dedicated to science and technology and their history in Taiwan, from communications to food. The only downside is the older exhibits are only in mandarin. We went on a Tuesday and it was empty and easy to get around to everything. For...More

NT $100 per person. The 3D movie is separate at another NT $150. Plan to be there for 2-3 hours if you look at most of the exhibits.
