National Museum of Natural Science Reviews
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 (... more »
博物館有點歷史了大概30年，有部分設施比較舊，但是裡面的都有不定期的特展，所以每次來都會有不一樣的感覺！第一次來我推薦生命科學廳，裡面介紹了生命的起源，從單細胞生物到小朋友最愛的恐龍，還有台灣唯一一具木乃伊，很值得一看。 more »The museum has a history of about 30 years, there are some stoic, but there are occasional special exhibitions, so every time there will be a different feeling! The first time I pushed the science of life, which covered the origin of life, the cell life to the children's favorite fear, and there is the only mummy in Taiwan, it is worth a look.
I've been to a few national museums around the world and they have all ensured that all exhibitions are multi lingual to cater to the majority of tourists. While I'm not suggesting for a second that English speaking tourists make up the majority of visitors, they will still account for a significant portion so when only a few exhibits have bilingual descriptions then it's difficult to fully enjoy the museum. I was impressed with the exhibit on human life which was bilingual. Seems as though the newer exhibits are bilingual and the older ones are only in Chinese. Building was quite outdated but that's only a small thing. A lot of families with small children.
This is a very clean and well maintained science museum. A great place to take children for a day out. Many restaurants to choose from walking distance from the museum, should you not want McDonald's. Friendly and helpful staff throughout. If you have children and go to museums often, consider membership. The membership is NT200 (NT50 more than adult admission) and can be used not only for admission to this museum, but also discounted entry into other museums island wide. Be sure not to miss the exhibits on B1 in the main building- some fun hands on exhibits for children. There is also a discovery area for children of younger ages in the attached building opposite the main entrance.
