Wonderful place to engage the young ones as well as the adults.. children would definitely love the dinosaurs exhibits.. but it’s a petty that the robotic dinosaurs are currently due for maintenance (should end by 3rd week of June). Also there’s a children play area...More

We only visited the Museum section and did not visit the 3D theater nor any of the other theaters that were in the museum. It was NT$100.00 per person to enter the museum, with additional charges for theaters. The museum itself was very interesting even...More

It is a huge museum, which is divided into several sections, and there is also a botanic garden. Some part of the museum is free. What I saw was the section of dinosaurs, which was very impressive. The pity is that some explanations are only...More

The free exhibits are quite interesting and provide opportunities to explore a good range of physics and other natural scientific phenomena. Well worth the trip. Not all exhibits have translation, so it may be worth getting an English language guide if this is an issue.

The National Museum of Natural Science is quite interesting. It has all things you expect to find in a science museum - nothing too special or surprising. Nevertheless, still a good place to visit in Taichung. 國家自然科學博物館挺有趣。 它擁有您期望在科學博物館中找到的所有東西 - 沒有什麼特別或令人驚訝的。 不過,仍然是台中的一個好去處。

Very educational and fun or us- and its suitable for all ages. We borrowed two wheelchairs for our elderly parents from the centre and overall the experience here was pleasant for us family :)

One can easily spend an entire morning at the science museum and arboretum and spend less than five American dollars. The museum is nice but the arboretum is pretty spectacular. If you're in Taichung, it's definitely one of the Top Ten things to do.

When I went to this place, I just looking around for about 15 minutes. But from what I see, there a lot of parents that bring their children, so maybe this place is a kid friendly. The admission ticket is free.

At least 1/2 day. We spent 2 hrs there, not enough time. There are lots of queues during exhibition. Need to queue to get a ticket in advance for some of them.

There is a lot of food in the SOGO department store which is close by. However somewhat expensive.
