Interesting, but not exceptional. It is good for kids. It is educational, but not very deep - I would say that it is mostly suitable for elementary school children.

Interesting but nothing much. Travelled specially to this place and museum was also occupied by kids in maybe primary school. Good place t visit if you have time but otherwise not necessary.

We came without realizing most exhibits are currently under renovation. The cosmic ride on the 4th floor was still available. It was ok but overall feeling was one of entertainment vs education. There are some video game style things to do after the ride. We...More

Lots of fun and very cheap for the quality. A great place to spend time with your family of you have an afternoon that your want to spend inside. Highly recommend the "ride" on the 4th floor and the VR games.

Let’s face it, visiting a relatively old astronomy museum isn’t what we want even though ancient astronomy can date back in light years. Just wish that it is more modern than what we would have expected. The locker, for instance, is so old that I...More

Speaking and reading only English, I was disappointed to discover that I could only understand a couple of areas in this facility - one of them designed for kids. I suspect that those with an understanding of Mandarin would really enjoy the exhibits.

This seemed like an excellent rainy day activity. I've been to Taipei countless times before, so I finally got to see this interesting place. One caution: Almost everything, except some exhibit titles, is in Chinese. The best part of my visit was the outstanding IMAX...More
