921 Earthquake Museum 

On 9/21/1999 around 1:47 am a magnitude 7.5 earthquake hit Taiwan and caused thousands to lose homes and loved ones. Nestled in Wufeng, Taichung there is a living museum of this tragic event. The museum itself is a highschool that was damaged by the earthquake. It is a lovely yet sad experience. It only costs 50NT per person to enter. With this you get access to the grounds, the earthquake simulation room and 3D movie. My gf was in her teens when it hit, so it was very real for her and I to see her go through this experience with me. I suggest going of you want to experience a piece of Taiwan history.
