The Pathway of Evolution in front of the main entrance to the Museum leads visitors traveling from Taichung Harbor Road to discover the wonders of the natural world. This lush pathway conveys the progressive, open spirit of the Museum, and the importance of an unambiguous, comfortable, secure, and predictable welcome. "This threshold is a vital link between the Museum and its surrounding neighborhood just as the link between science and the natural world," states Mr. Han, the first director of the Museum.
This path displays life-sized life forms of each geological period such as trilobites in the Paleozoic Era, dinosaurs in the Mesozoic Era and mammals in Cenozoic Era. Travel through centuries of evolution and see the wonders of nature.
