Nothing much over there, therefore not worth a visit. Only thing is there are some decent food stalls but when I went, only some were open

Not worth it. Go to the glass shops which are close to the little lake and have a punt around there. It is much more interesting. The museum is dull and boring.

Sorry, but I did read some of the reviews before I penned mine down. And so I guess many people are more forgiving. For me, it was really NOT WORTH it if you were all excited to see what magical glass sculptures or expect to be blown away from glassy wonders. Oh well... you are in for a shattering experience....

not much to see. everything is a bit old. very disappointed with this museum. visit if you have plenty of times so burn. if not, i suggest you spend more times on the street market/stalls just outside this museum

I am sure those with an interest in glass art and its history would find this enjoyable, but if you are not it is not really worth the entrance fee.

We loved seeing the different ways glass is used and adapted in Taiwan and beyond. Don't miss the workshop where you can watch students try their hand at glass blowing. Also check out the shops down the path where local artisans sell their work. We got beautiful swan and Christmas tree glass figurines for less than $10.

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...
