The favorite of the big kids is this energy shuttle of up to 22 meters, which is the largest of its kind in the world. On each floor, there are many parents who accompany the children to watch the energy ball in every corner of the exhibition hall.
The Science Museum's new "Children's World" is a newly opened exhibition hall.

Although the official website requires a child of one meter six, they can play with their parents. But we observed the content of the experience, and it feels suitable for children who are at least three years old. Perhaps it is a new exhibition hall, many local moms and dads and children to experience, need to stay in line waiting time. The theme of the special exhibition on
3rd floor is "miffy and the ocean". Mainly to use the cartoon image of miffy to tell the children the importance of protecting marine life. Miffy is a meat god, meaning the cookie goddess, because now his favorite is miffy biscuits. Miffy biscuits have a chance to eat only when they are away from home, so he especially cherishes and is particularly eager to get. At the same time, he placed a small snack in front of him, and his eyes only had miffy.
