  • The museum will not be open until 9 a.m. but there are many things to do before 9 here. There are amazing sculptures in the garden, there is a part of Calligraphy Greenway here and there is also a Sky...  more »
  • The weather in Taichung is so hot that it's hard to get around in summer. So it's nice to have a course with one of these art galleries, and the heat is also helpful, and the building itself is neat and nice. I didn't see the exhibition, but i only saw the souvenirs on the first floor, so it was fun. It's a great place to stay.

  • There are often large-scale exhibitions from time to time in the United States, which attract sons, visitors and workers to come here and perform, and it is also convenient to eat here..., alongside the Spring Water Hall, there are many special chinese meals.

  • This is a wonderful museum -not too huge but one can't complaint for it is free for everybody to go in and enjoy (You will never find that in North America or Europe!) When we went they had paintings installations scriptures all good!. We spent around 30 minutes here so definitely good side trip if you are in the area.
  • It has been free to enter each time I visited over the past few years. But don't let the cheap entry fee influence your expectations. This article museum is a must see. The exhibits are always top notch.
  • Awesome. Definitely a place to be for family from retired to babies. Great kids library/ theatre at base level. Interesting exhibitions all year round. Very pleasantly surprised. For a museum, they really pick interest and easily understood art for all age groups.
  • Free foot entrance. This museum exhibit lots of artworks from local Taiwan. They also offer the guiding tour for free.
  • I came just before closing time but still managed to check out the exhibits. Beautiful architecture, great for photos outside, and of course, a high standard of design and art excellence. Pleasantly surprised and impressed. (It just closed too early in my opinion!)
