Museum of Contemporary Art Taipei, Taipei

(3.7/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web)
Attend contemporary art shows and admire the historic architecture of Museum of Contemporary Art Taipei. Built in 1921, the building served as an elementary school, then the local town hall, before becoming a museum in 2001. Although completely different in purpose and construction from the art it displays, the historical architectural style adds to the ambiance surrounding the contemporary exhibits. See various collections of works by internationally and locally recognized artists in the building, which was built in the Taiwanese colonial style during Japanese colonization.

  • 位在中山站與台北車站中間,當代藝術館過去是舊台北市政府,目前除了是古蹟外,也是設計類的藝術館,館內外有很多展品,不定時會舉辦特展,例如:日本卷川實花特展。 
  • There is a lot of history from the Chinese mainland here. Lots of non local artwork which enforce Chinas rights over Taiwan. It takes time to discover the difference between Taiwanese culture and Chin...  more »
  • This is small but nice contemporary museum located in the middle of town near then main train station. The artists shown might not be something for everybody, but we enjoyed it and spend about an hour...  more »

  • Great exhibition space with interesting and thoughtfully designed ambiance for each room. Museum is not very large but perfect in size for showcasing 3 exhibitions concisely yet thoroughly unraveling an artist's narrative in the given context. Audio tour is available for rent (free) or you can download the tours on your phone with qr codes. Admission ticket is 50nt. Museum site is very informative and well updated. They also offer educational programs and lectures you can sign up for. In short, great choice for spending a fun morning or afternoon with much food for thought.
  • Nice museum. The exhibits change from time to time. Check their website to know current status. Do some research on the exhibit before visiting otherwise you will stand in queue for hours and disappointed if the exhibition is not of your interest.
  • Quirky place with friendly staff and artworks that while not necessarily impressive are at interesting. Allows photographs.
  • +Interesting exhibits from local artists -Tours conducted only in Mandarin so non-Mandarin speakers might not get the full experience
  • Superb museum for contemporary art. An absolute must when visiting Taipei - for less than $2
