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.

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.
