    Has potential with its good-looking 13-story building but it's a ghost town by 3pm


    From the outside this new science center looks pretty cool with its impressive 13 floors of exhibits! Disappointingly, when we visited in early November at around 3pm - there were less than 10 visitors. We just walked over from the amusement park next door, literally just 3-minutes walk away, and the park was filled with school children even when we were leaving. While it's true you can do some hands-on interaction with some of the exhibits, most of those were closed when we were there at 3pm. What's left were some boring ones. And sorry for being honest here - we saw many volunteers sleeping on almost every floor we visited. While we should all appreciate these kind volunteers' giving of their time, but it's a little sad to see that even they are bored too with the lack of visitors. Even the shop and cafe all closed early. We didn't see where all the cool rides and shows supposedly were. Lifts were super confusing as they were trying to conserve energy, or they closed early. Four out of five lifts not working on most floors so we had a bit of navigating to do to get around, and eventually we just got out of the building after an hour or so.

    Hands on museum


    I brought my 9 years old son. Perfect age for this museum. Exhibits are mostly hands on. The displays are bilingual. We spent about 3 hours there. If you like, make it a fun day and just walk to the amusement park across the street. At the end of the day, go to the Shilin night market. All around the same area.

    Good science museum


    We spent about 3-4 hours visiting the 3rd to 6th floors and we couldn’t visit all we wanted to see. This was covered by the general admission fee. The exhibits were very interesting and fun and it takes a while to properly go through each of them. Great for young children.

    Great for under 5s


    My 3 year old loved this museum especially the science playground. The biology section was fantastic particularly being able to walk through the human body. Incredibly cheap entrance fee for what you get. I would recommend bringing you own lunch though unless you like Mos burger.

    Outdated science museum


    I went here with my 2 kids and was a bit disappointed. I expected more from a science museum in Taiwan. Though I find the museum very informational, it is not just interesting for the young kids nowadays. It feels that the museum has not been updated for almost 10 years already. The place is clean and huge but lacks interesting interactive activities for the current young kids.
