We designed four themes, “Time travel”, “Nature of Taiwan”,“Grace of the Villages” and “Games of childhood”, which are equipped with audio, visual arts and models to provide a place for children to learn the multi-culture of Taiwan and inspire them while playing games.

The movie "A Journey through Time" takes children through Taiwan's early history with flashbacks of the modern era, Japanese colonial era, Qing Dynasty, Dutch Formosa, Spanish Formosa, Kingdom of Tungning and prehistoric Taiwan so that children can experience movement through both time and space.
