We were looking for something to do to fill a morning, just a few hours. Found this place and really enjoyed it. Had our two children with us (4 and 2 years old) and with the little book you can purchase, they had much fun collecting stamps around the museum. Quite difficult to remind the children not run & jump!... More

Everything that was displayed was really detailed and jaw dropping! It was very enjoyable and they even had stamps related to some of the miniatures! My favourite part of the museum was the shop where you could also make your own miniatures or buy some!

This is by far one of the most exquisite site attractions in Taipei i have ever visited. This museum, as suggested by its name "miniature", is not a very spacious and vast museum. In fact, if one were to walk around the museum by a mere glance of the artifacts, one can easily reach the exit within 15 minutes or... More

The range of miniatures on show are amazing and cover a wide range of subjects, from Buckingham Palace to Jack & the Beanstalk. They are well laid out and in most cases accompanied by excellent explanations in English. Some of the miniatures defy belief in the way they have been crafted to exactly match their real size equivalents. The detail... More

Taipei's Miniatures Museum is the best miniature museum I have across in any of my travels so far. I have seen small collections at museums such as the Smithsonian or the National Museum of Denmark, but this is a dedicated museum of just miniatures. Besides a large number of different decorative dollhouses, there are at least 25-30 intricate room displays... More

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.
