North Coast Exploratorium

Audio Guide

Situated by Baisha Bay Visitor Center, the exploratorium takes “amazing adventures,” “knowledge and information,” and “family tours” as its main themes to show the characteristics of the area’s land, oceans and the sky. Colorful illustrations and childlike writings make this place attractive to children and youngsters.

The exploratorium is divided into six sections: surprising North Coast, geological wonders, deep-sea discoveries, the “jungle of knowledge” of the North Coast, riding winds and waves, and artists’ secret base. A range of geo-scape models, VR facilities, and interactive projections enable visitors to fully experience the North Coast’s beautiful culture and nature, whilst increasing awareness of environmental protection.

There are six major sections in the Exploratorium:

  1. Beautiful North Coast:With interactive three-dimensional landscape models, this section introduces the themes of transportation, landscapes, and ecology of the North Coast, as well as the itinerary.
  2. Amazing Landscapes:With the FRP floor and a model of the Queen’s Head, this section introduces the geology, topography, and natural sceneries of the coast. It also displays the beauty of the natural tidal rhythm to evoke the awareness of respecting the environment and cherishing the ecology.
  3. Great Discovery of the Sea:The mini-submarine takes you to the abyss of the sea. You can fully experience the fun of exploring the deep sea, with the help of the fantastic facilities such as the three-dimensional theater, the ecology kaleidoscope, the electronic album, and the projection of the interactions of schools of fish.
  4. Knowledge Jungle on the North Coast:Through the connection of a painted hallway of a starry sky, the environment is brought from the sea back to the land. The “Birds of Prey Soaring in the Sky” helps us to understand the mysterious trips of the migrating birds, and the interactive electronic book further introduces the rich land-air resources in the North Coast & Guanyinshan National Scenic Area.
  5. Surfing the Waves:There are huge, wonderful facilities in this section to experience surfing, biking, and virtual yacht-interaction, as well as artistic decorations of paragliding, hang gliding, the Toufu Rock, the Lighthouse, and the Green Reefs for you to deeply experience the diversified travel of the North Coast.
  6. The Secret Base of the Artists:This is a multi-functional space, with sunshine as the main factor of concept, to provide a place for educational activities and the heritage of art. The brilliant sunshine symbolizes the passion of the people and their happy personality under the influence of the art and culture of the North Coast.
