Dead easy to find from exit 2 not 1 which is on the other side of the road. Turn right out of songyuan road station line 10 then right again past the soon ching Lin mausoleum ( well worth a visit).

I was looking after a few young children and thought this would be a good rainy day activity. Don't bother. Seriously needs updating and maybe...cleaning? I am surprised that busloads of children still come to visit this place. It is very rundown.

the exhibitions are not impressive at all. Some are boring. The indoor playhouse for kids (with tree house at 2nd level) was fun for kids. The movie was good.
