I'm not sure how long this has been open, but we visited the building within the zoo for the first time, last week. My children are aged seven and five, and I think they are almost the perfect age for this center. There are models of animals, and real stuffed ones, showing animals of China, Formosa, and Tibet, as well as a really cool dinosaur/prehistoric animal room. Learn about the history of the zoo (during the war, all the zoo animals were shot to prevent any risk of them running away after bombings), and about Lin Wang, the much-loved Asian elephant.
Hours: Tuesday-Sunday 9am-5pm
Entrance: TWD20 (children under 120cm accompanied by adult free, 65yrs and over TWD10)
