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

Had great expectations. But was disappointed with the themes of works they offered. Yes, i must agreed that the craft was done creatively and professionally but the theme were mostly not what we are exposed to generically. However, it is an experience in Taiwan.

Just went to the miniatures museum today and it surpassed my expectations. The level of detail and craftsmanship is impressive, and the museum is also well-curated, with many signs in English giving you some background on each of the pieces. Prices were fairly cheap, $180 NT (about $6.00 US at the time of this post), and the gift shop was... More

Nice! the museum is compact. The mini items are so real. Entrance fee is also cheap. We loved the place. Definitely worth the time there if you like miniatures.

The museum is rather small scale, but they have some good collections. I am a miniature lover so I definitely enjoy everything that the museum can offers. Those who don't like miniature will find it extremely boring. You can easily spend 1 - 2hrs in the museum.

We decided to do a playgroup outing here with a few moms and kids because we had heard that they had little passports and stamps all through out so it must be child friendly, right? WRONG. The workers were so rude to us about our kids constantly shushing them even though they weren't even that loud (Why do they need... More

This place is well worth a visit if you appreciate creativity and small exquisite stuff (entrance fee $180). The ambience of the museum is very nice, with the use of dim lights and highlights here and there. There are many pieces, both big and small, on display and you can easily while away an hour or more here. Make sure... More

I really love to visit this museum again if I can afford time. Although the museum is a bit off the main road, you would be satisfied once you step into the place. There are a lot of miniatures ranging from house settings (mostly western styles), doll in traditional costumes to gardens. What struck me the most is how detailed... More
