Global Environment Hall
In addition to the Bird's Eye View Theater, Environment Theater and 3-D Theater, the Global Environment Hall houses four exhibit areas: Microscopic World, Life on Earth, Taiwan's Ecology and the Tibetan Plateau Remote Astronomical Observation Exhibition. Also in this hall are Classroom Theaters which cover themes of: The Dynamic Earth, Underground Treasures, Exploring the Ocean, Man and the Environment, and Species Conservation. In 2008, Science on a Sphere (SOS) was introduced. This multimedia exhibition system features a 173cm diameter animated globe that reveals Earth's dynamic changes.

Life on Earth uses seven life-like dioramas to introduce some of the world’s important ecosystems: Canadian tundra, Manchurian temperate forest, East African savanna, Borneo mangroves, Galapagos coast, Sonoran desert and Costa Rican rainforest.

In Microscopic World visitors can operate observation equipment themselves to explore the world from different perspectives.

Specimens are from a variety of scientific fields, including zoology, botany, earth sciences, human physiology and medical science.
