    Really enjoyed this visit


    We really enjoyed the visit here. There are numerous, large fossils of dinosaurs. We saw a group of school children receiving instruction with a teacher and a computer monitor. You can wander around in this cool space. Great place for photos. The second major item is the two story bank fault that others have mentioned. Great gift shop.

    Wow, really interesting, professional and free


    A little drizzle meant views from 101 might not be clear so we went here with our Taiwanese friends. We could hire a audio guide for free leaving our passport as a deposit (totally safe). We were encouraged to go to the theatre as a show was soon to start and once there they checked to see if we needed English sub titles. Do not miss it as it creates a context for the rest of the centre. It is all free.

    Batter up for Taiwan!


    Taipei has an engaging history, as the Discovery Centre illustrates It's a record of the history of Taipei since prehistoric days. Just now, there is a multilevel display of baseball in Taiwan. The people of Taiwan love baseball. Apart from the many trophies that Taiwan has won at junior level since the 1970s, Taiwan won an Olympic bronze in 1984 and an Olympic silver in 1992. The Chinese Professional Baseball League (CPBL) has had its ups and downs, but Taiwan's fans turn out to support their favourite players. Taiwan ball players have starred in US Major League Baseball (MLB) and also in the competitive Japanese league. The Discovery Centre is located in the Taipei City Government building, near the MRT station. Entry is gratis; you can easily spend an hour or two here. Anyone who likes baseball will find much to interest them.

    Lots of things to do around the centre of Taipei, the National Palace is nearby, as well as a creative park, a unique temple, just walking around is fantastic. There is also a huge underground shopping centre at the Taipei Main Station.
