not one of the hot spots to visit
Jun 2020
We went to Paper Dome with our friends and family. The kids thought it was a bit boring. My kids are 10 and 9 years old boys. There wasn't much to do there but just walk around in the heat. The site was good but they just thought it was boring. It was 50 NTD per person. The paper dome didn't really look much like paper neither did the seats (even though we knew it was). Kids didn't think it was really worth the time.

Not worth your time and money
Dec 2019
We were looking forward to visiting this place as we though it would be an entire structure made of paper.

However the main exhibit was disappointing. We were trying to look around it to figure out exactly what the structure is and what parts of it was made out of paper. There are a few other structures at the place but the place looks like it could do with some maintenance.

I don't think its worth paying a fee to visit this place.

A Simple Structure with Significant History
Nov 2018
We made a quick stop here while travelling from Taichung to Sun Moon Lake by car. There’s not much to see but it is of historical significance. The structure traces its root back to the Kobe earthquake in 1995. It is still worthwhile to stop by if one happens to be in Puli.

I had to pay the fee and there was nothing much to see. It is just a paper dome with some other stores next to it. The pond next to it was very pretty.

Small place with rich historical value
Dec 2017 • Family
Paper dome is a small place but interesting architecture with its root from Japan. One will need to sit through the Mandarin presentation to understand its value of bringing people together, overcoming the devastation of the 921 earthquake. Not a very popular tourist place but worth the visit.

Dome is supported by many paper pillars which is interesting. However the structure is protected by doors which spoils the sight. Owner should consider replacing the doors with some other protective structures that does not spoil the beauty and uniqueness of the pillars.

A small garden in a little village. The dome is not 100% paper. Still there is steel. The main idea is to promote recycle. That's why their entry ticket is also "recyclable" - you can use it to deduct the payment in their store for souvenir or food.

Innovative idea of paper buildings
Jun 2017 • Family
Very innovative idea to construct whole building with paper. You have to pay to get in but entrance fees paid can be use to offset purchases.

There is also cafeteria, shops & toilets facility.

If you happen to be around that area, and have the luxury of time, you can check out this place. But you wont miss much if you skip this place.

Actually I thought the little hall should be made out of paper, but it seems that it is a place to promote environmental protection and preservation of butterflies.
