  • 無論博物館本身的建築、館內的軟體服務、館藏、餐點,都是讓人想一遊再遊的好地方。 館外的停車空間便利,台南都會公園的規劃與造景,令人賞心悅目。 
  • 久聞奇美博故館的美名. 直到真的造訪後, 覺得台灣也能有這樣有水準的博物館. 真的很開心. 以前曾經去過日本京都的MIHO美術館, 喜歡裡面寧靜的看展空間. 沒想到這次在奇美也有一樣的感受. 尤其在陽光灑落下的環境參觀, 感覺真的很棒! 館藏豐富, 活動很多, 逛了一整天都逛不完. 真的很超值! 
  • 記得去奇美博物館可先在外圍的公園樹林逛逛 ,環境很優美,也很大讓人心情舒爽,再進去博物館參觀,當然要在預約時間準時到達,也記的別帶太大的背包與水,不過也可以以先寄放在大廳的寄物櫃,再來就可慢慢參觀,肚子餓時館內也有餐廳與咖啡廳喔.

  • Super huge modern museum - they show weapons from different times and cultures. Taking photos is not allowed. Air conditioning works well :)). 1 fancy restaurant and 1 coffee shop inside / outside. Bus transfer from the train station available.
  • Great collection of fine art pieces - exhibition highlights included sculptures from Rodin & his coterie (Camille Claudel et Al), a couple of small Dali sculptures, and a round up of classical painting from 17th to 20th Centuries. My suggestion is unless you're with young children, to skip the natural history exhibition, as it's a tad cheesy and dull. Also, photography is not allowed inside the museum. Fascinating, well put together, and definitely not what you'd expect to find in Tainan!
  • I spent 6 hours here a loved everything from the cafe to the artwork. The audio guide explains the art pieces perfectly and their importance. What I did not appreciate was the lack of self awareness by the visitors and staff. Constantly nudging into each other and allowing children to rampage through the fine art gallery why the staff looked on with their 'be quiet' signs is a disgrace. Chimei should be ashamed. These types of visitors need to start thinking about others rather then themselves. Cutting in front of someone for 10 seconds and reading one tenth of a display card while someone else is reading and enjoying a piece of art just so you can say, "FIRST" is impolite.
  • Beautiful exhibit with many contents & precious artifacts, however, it is ridiculous not to allow photography within the premises. It is not as if they are protecting national treasure or any of such sorts, even sacred places in other nations permit photography.
  • An amazing museum in Tainan with a large collection of art! I had two and a half hours to spend, there but felt like I could have spent an entire day!
