  • Holiday to visit Kobo is always a difficult, a lot of people, a lot of families to bring children to blow the cold, half a year ticket can always come, just stop is not easy to find, stop is not cheap

  • There are a lot of videos coming in, and then there are a lot of short films, there are different videos, there are a lot of people to make the public understand the science. First of all, how taiwan formed, the problem of the land, the national, and so on. See the time to collect data, set up for a long time, but also because the time is too long without updates, so there is a little bit of time is not quite time. But when a fun can be fun with children can play with children for a day in a place . . .

  • 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 Building was quite outdated but that's only a small thing.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.
