There were four exhibits that I went through: Faint Light, Dark Shadows, Riverrun, KAO Tsan-Hsing Retrospective Exhibition and one other. The light and shadow exhibit featured several artists covering a wide range of themes. In particular were the picture cubes which showed a different picture from each angle, and a series of exhibits featuring pairs of prisoners chained together.

Poor non-local language commentary, including some which seems to carry ideological content. Displays on the day we visited were not to our taste.

Can't believe this fine building is wasted on exhibits I saw. Not worth the train ride. No more to say.

I admit I'm a Philistine when it comes to modern art - the exhibits in this museum left me totally bored. There were only 3 good things about this visit - it was Saturday and admission was free, it was warmer inside than out, and there was a nice view of the Grand Hotel. If you enjoy modern art, don't...

Well coordinated and well presented with great staff and the usual friendly feeling that one comes quickly this wonderful city. Politeness seems to be in the very heart of these people. Blown away by the art and various South African contributors .

Great collection of works of art, variety of styles, mediums, even if you are not an art lover - it still gives you plenty of knowledge about Taiwanese culture and society. Fully recommended!

At the time of writing, the Taipei Biennial is underway. This museum is host to some interesting exhibitions, including a retrospective of Wang Hsin's photography going back many decades. I loved Tiffany Chung's personal work re-counting her father's capture by the North Vietnamese (yes, ladies and gents, the "ROCs" were fighting alongside the Americans and Australians in Indochina in the...

It had quite a lot of art pieces and it is located near a subway station, so it is easy to navigate around. It has a range of different exhibitions going on and there are some spacious area for a rest.
