We have been to IFG U Museum once. It was a lot better than I was expecting, and it was a fun place for the kids.
The main entrance to the museum.
The main part of the museum is a long hallway of world architecture and history, focusing on Taiwan and China.
The highlight was the building blocks and house building video game inside. You can build your own dream house virtually and send your self an email of the plan.
There is also a reading room, and a small library.
Last of all there exhibit dedicated to the history of the company.
Overall, this place is a nice place to relax after a long day of shopping at the iFG mall.
