“Fun place to visit with kids, a bit outdated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

We loved the dinosaur section. The annimated T-rex and Velociraptors are amazing. Kids can stay for hours watching them.

Over all the museum offers a nice introduction to many aspect of life and science.
It start to age a bit and some of the animations are simply out of order

Worth a visit :)

“Natural sciences from a Chinese perspective”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012

Like any science and technology museum but with a Chinese perspective. Exhibits are the usual. The dinosaur fossils and genetics.

What makes it a little unique is the Chinese philosophy and outlook into life on this planet as well as death. Even highlights the futility for the quest for immortality (something we should all be reminded) since China has a long history for such a search.

The kids as usual love the dino fossils. The adults will be intrigued by the medical section with its focus on genetics. The section on death is rather unique and should not be avoided for all ages.

Very easily you can spend the whole morning here. We came here to take refuge from the rain which drenched the whole of Taiwan in March of 2012.
