This weekend I checked out the Botanical Garden of the National Museum of Natural Science [國立自然科學博物館] in Taichung. Founded in 1999, the 4.5-hectare garden contains more than 400 plant collections. The admission charge for the Tropical Rain Forest Greenhouse [pictured above] is $20NT.
There’s an elevator to the top of the gardens, but all the spots for the soonest time slot were filled and there wasn’t another one for a couple hours, so I didn’t get a chance to get a top view of the greenhouse.
A family of three enjoys the view:
The greenhouse also contains a 14-foot aquarium stocked with large fish from the Amazon River. A smaller tank contains fish such as Tetras and Angelfish while another tank contains Tree Frogs.
The garden and greenhouse are an excellent stop for anyone visiting Taichung on the cheap.
