3.7/5 based on 110 reviews on the web
Attend contemporary art shows and admire the historic architecture of Museum of Contemporary Arts. 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.

  • Walk from Nakayama station, 5 minutes away. Now with free admission, was supposed to be an admission charge if found early, but events are held. Where you can experience the art of Taipei is small, but very nice.

  • The only reason I paid 50 RMB to enter is because I thought it was the real Shanghai Museum, so I was surprised that this looked like the office of an architect studio promoting their on design. This is the exebithion they are doing now and not worht the money for people who do not care too much for small scale models of buildings. The thing that saved the trip was a small room with some matrix-chineese stuff going on to simulate a mind.... That was fun.
  • Love it here, this MOCA showed that Taiwan government cares about arts and culture deeply. Personally amazed by the local artist in the "solo exhibition " in the MOCA this time.
  • Not so special exhibition, but indeed you can see something interesting and new if you're interested in Taiwan culture
  • its a very convenient location, and a nice old colonial building. exhibits are hit or miss
  • Skip this place and go to the Taipei Fine Arts Museum instead. This small, second tier, low budget curated art space had a higher entrance fee than the superb Taipei Fine Arts Museum.
