The museum is located next to Hsinchu Zoo & part of the Vision Hall of the Windy City. Photography is not allowed inside the museum and the entrance fees is NT$20 per person. The exhibits are nice and there are also a section which tells about the history of glass making in the world and in Taiwan specifically. There are... More

I went here with a group of Chinese speaking friends because my guide book said that it is a sight of interest but very limited English information. However I think the museum has been updated greatly since my guidebook was published. All information was available in Chinese and English, very informative and beautiful artworks!

This is a great place to take a family for a day out. There are plenty of activities for the kids to get involved in and for out of Hsinchu visitors, it presents a good idea of the glass making industry in Hsinchu and a bit of an understanding of the layout of the city (there it a giant 3D...

You could take your kids there for a whole day by buying the package tickets in a very reasonable price, especially when you are Hsinchu citizen with a Hsinchu citizen card. Cultural glass ware are pretty attractive and kids could practice how ancient beauties are.

Small Museum but fun to see the beautiful glass artwork with a dash of history. The artifacts are updated quite regularly and gives an insight into evolution of Hsinchu as center of glass manufacturing to a semiconductor tech hub.

This museum used to be the residence of Japanese Governor when Taiwan was still its colony. It is well-kept until today and the Japanese style structural detail is worth taking a good look at, too. Inside, there are creative arts of glass on display. The craftsmanship is amazing. Not only art exhilbition, there is also an area explaining the process... More

My husband and I went here on a Saturday afternoon during the International Glass Art Festival and the place was abuzz. There was lots to do and aside from seeing the museum, you could check out glass artists live and some of the kids had the chance to try glass blowing themselves. I have a hunch that these "extras" are... More

The Hsinchu Glass Museum entrance has received a bit of a face lift due to its international exhibition series. The pavilions have winning and runner up glass art on display as well as some contemporary media art. The Glass Master demonstration is still a great way to spend an hour of your afternoon as you see the master himself create... More

Hsinchu is not really a vacation travel destination. I went on a business trip, accompanying my husband. The glass museum and zoo are right next to each other, so I made a morning of it. Entrance was very inexpensive, under $1 US. Volunteers greeted me at the door and were eager to try out their English. While appreciative, since I... More
