I have lived in Taipei for almost four months and have been to most of the city's museums, but this was by far the worst! Most of Taipei's museums are inexpensive, but this one is not. In addition, they would not honor my student ID (although the sign offered a lower rate for students and my university is located in... More

The Miniatures Museum of Taiwan is inside the basement of an office building. You will be pleasantly surprised by the museum's sizable collection of over 200 items once you enter the not so glorious entrance. There is a chandelier with 40 tiny bulbs, each bulb is about the size of a grain of rice. One can easily kill a couple... More

I had specially included this attraction in our travel plan as one of the most-do places as it was highly recommended by a close friend who frequently travels to Taipei. And I am glad to share that there is no regret visiting this attraction. We (hubs and I) went with my in-laws and our kids (aged 5 and 11) and... More

This was not my highlighted place to visit. Well, why no spend some time and curiosity. This was a really interesting place to visit. These miniatures all have great detail and worth to see. Advise: Don't miss the souvenir shop located at the exit... But the entrance fees are not cheap.

This was not high on our list of things to do... however this was a really interesting museum to spend time at. The miniatures all have great detail and they were clearly created by very gifted artists. Although the museum is quite small we spend more than 1 hour here.

As a miniature lover, this was a must for me when I was in Taipei. Getting there was a bit confusing but just follow the instructions of the other reviewers and it should be fine. About a 15minute walk from Songjiang-Nanjing station. Photography is allowed but no flash. Very detailed and intricate. Spent about 2 hours there but could have... More

It was also excellent for purchasing small building gifts for children if you... More

I thought that this museum was unique and spectacular! You need to be interested in miniatures -- if you like high quality doll houses or the scenery done for model rail road, you will be impressed. This is a hands-on room for children to build, but it is not the focus of the museum. The main area is not hands-on.... More

This place is just amazing. The details are just spot on and they're entire rooms and houses inside small aquariums. I was definitely amazed. I showed my friends close up photos of the miniature rooms and they thought that they were life size beds and tables and all. It was also fun that they had a "passport" for visitors so... More

Took a while to find this place from the train station. It's located to the basement of some office building. And asking for directions was quite difficult as language is quite a barrier here. But it was a nice experience here and I enjoyed it even though I'm not artistic or know how to appreciate things like this. Not very... More
