    The art museum is amazing, when I went almost all galleries were in use and the exhibitions' style+ motives were wildly different, so I am sure everybody could find something to their taste. Some artwork did not have English description, but even if one doesn't read chinese i believe the art speaks for itself. Also, the entrance is free - perhaps bring food+drink instead of buying in the museum's coffee/gift shop. The quality is not bad, but it is rather overpriced, even considering that museum entrance is free.

    Perfect place to enjoy nature and and be inspired. The exterior of the building is modest, but it holds spacious exhibition galleries that change periodically. Came here on mid January 2017, I personally love the 黃光男 literati art exhibition.
