The entrance fee is 200 NTD and a reasonable price for the museum. If you drive a car there is a big parking lot and 60 NTD for the whole day. Don't forget to go to the gift shop. You will end up buy ... more »
A private museum that have display of animals, weapons, musical instruments among others. Do take note that you are not allowed to take pictures in the display areas. There's a outdoor cafe that have sittings for you to enjoy your coffee and light snacks. Please allows at least half a day to walk through the various displays. There's also audio guide in different language that you can rent for a minimum sum of money. Highly recommended.
It's a great feeling when something is even better than the photos. Inside is excellent also, and it cost 280 NTD each for the general galleries + temporary exhibition (bought separately 200 each). Expect queues at the cafe and higher than normal, although not extortionate, prices. I tried their "plum cola coffee" and was an unlikely but immediate fan. There is a great souvenir shop too. I would even recommend taking a look here first if you're hoping to make a purchase so that you can then go and view the real thing. Can't recommend enough. The most beautiful and intriguing museum I've been to.
