Art Museum
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.

  • 成立於2001年5月的台北當代藝術館是一座古蹟建築。在紅磚外型、木造屋架內的藝術館展示各種當代藝術作品。一般民眾入場費$50, 參觀當天中國八十後藝術家肖旭的"瀛洲排演"、好玩藝和小玩藝教室是免費進場。參觀完室內展覽再參觀搬放在藝術館外的十多件藝術品,還是比較欣賞藝術館外的藝術品。  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
