The building its self is decent and looks cool to look at, it was very modern and the garden was cool, but half of the galleries were closed at the time we went and it was just empty so that was just very annoying

When the Fine Arts Museum opened in 1983, it was a cause for great joy among art lovers. Initially, it sought to develop modern art appreciation in Taiwan, revealing many works that had not previously been seen, such as Modernist art from the Japanese colonial era (1895-1945). Many of the paintings were in Impressionist style, and were quite beautiful. As the Museum developed its collection, it sought to enhance a cross fertilization between Taiwan and foreign artists. Some of the visiting exhibitions are interesting. Although the Fine Arts Museum has had its share of controversies, it is a boon to Taipei's art lovers.

Taipei government is advised to get the budget to paint the building and organize well the internal layout. The exhibition is very few and no worthy to spend much time to appreciate it. It has lost its previous charm and attraction, feel sad for this museum.

Again, as I always review the building and architecture as well when stepping into the museum. This building is very pretty and quite symobilsh, if you learn more background of this museum.

If you have time maybe you can stroll around outsides of the museum, you may feel much happier than staying this old doldrums museum.

The Fine Arts Museum was a boon to art lovers when it opened. It has many innovaative exhibiions, both traditional and modern art. It has many exhibitions of contempary art. Much of the art from the Japanese colonial era (1895-1945) is amazingly good. Anyone with an interest in art should see this gallery. The galley is at Section Three, Chung Shan North Road.

The Museum has two exhibitions. One is by a female calligrapher. It is meaningless if you do not have a deep knowledge of Chinese calligaphy. To me, it looks like a series of blotches. The other display was from Western Australia; rather poor quality. Some things are of interest, such as rhe combination of Zen (or Chan) Buddhism and calligraphy. Otherwise, it was a couple of hours that could have been better spent..

Some museums are about the art inside while others seem more about the architecture. This special place gets the balance right between exhibitions using many media and a building that encourages visitors to take pictures, meditate and come away seeing the world differently.

Admission today was free. Perhaps because it is Wednesday or perhaps because some of the exhibits are closed while new installations are being assembled. An eclectic collection of videos and an area where you can sit on mats and cushions. Perhaps take a look but perhaps not for too long.

We walked 1.4 km east from the Dalongdong Baoan Temple passing through Yuanshan Park and the Expo Park to access this museum. An elevator took us to a long hallway of the new glass walled south extension, ending at the impressive Main Hall. This huge 3 story space emphasizes heavy concrete pillars, concrete roof supports and even concrete railings.
We were given free access to the escalators up to the 3rd floor (2nd floor closed for exhibit change) where we perused a succession of halls of various exhibits. Trying to find meaning is a perpetual goal for us that was most successful in the last hall. It had 2 large collections of ceramic dogs and an attempt to explain the different breeds over the past centuries being directed by the varying needs of human companionship.
This made sense to us as we returned to the MRT.

First the museum is located in a beautifully designed building and located in a very nice part of Taipei. The building is enormous and can hold many exhibitions simultaneously. When I announced to the ticket seller that I am a senior (as if she couldn’t tell just by looking at me), I was told that there was no need to buy a ticket.

In addition to the exhibitions which periodically change (so there is really no reason to specify them in this review) the museum has a store with an extremely impressive assortment of art books for sale. It should be noted that other than a few exceptions, they are all written in Chinese (Mandarin, I assume). The museum also has a very pleasant cafeteria.
