  • One of the best museums i've visited in Taiwan. Lots of the exhibitions are provided with information in English (unfortunatly not all). Admission is free. It is easy to reach this museum by bus. Ther...  more »
  • With five floors of exhibition area, there is a lot to see, from classical period to modern art. Figure on spending several hours here.  more »
  • This place has always something of interest. A few permanent pieces in the lobby and outside. The layout is very good and has many options for different exhibitions. Great shop.  more »

  • 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.
  • Big, beautiful building dedicated to amazing local art. Can't believe it's for free! So happy we came here
  • Beautiful space. Well curated. Interesting pieces. Loved the murder mystery floor, very interactive and hauntingly beautiful, fun!
  • Beautiful place surrounded by greenery. Worth a visit. Walk to hospital nearby to catch taxis there
  • 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.
