Really well laid out and a fantastic experience. The only draw back is that English information is really limited, but still a must see in Taichung.

Big museum, should go with kids. Kids would like very much and gain knowledge as well. Would suggest to spend 1/2 days as many areas need to apply tickets and queue to get inside which took lots of times. Also, not much choice for lunch.

Free entry with lots of educational, yet fun and interesting things for children to do. There are 5 floors with each floor covering a different topic.

We had a great time here although we did not enough time to explore fully. The museum is so interactive with viewers. It is so spacious, nice and informative. It is really a highlight of Taichung.

At least 1/2 day. We spent 2 hrs there, not enough time. There are lots of queues during exhibition. Need to queue to get a ticket in advance for some of them.

There is a lot of food in the SOGO department store which is close by. However somewhat expensive.
