The Museum of Contemporary Art Taipei is located in a historic Japanese-era building once used as Chenggong Elementary School. After Taiwan's retrocession, the building housed the Taipei City Hall. When City Hall moved to Xinyi District in 1994, the building was turned into an art museum. The museum was officially renamed in 2000 as the Museum of Contemporary Art Taipei. Free audio guide service and group tours are available.

    I made a special trip from 45 mins away to see this museum and they only had one small exhibit on display. A waste of time. If and when they are ever fully operational I think they might have some nice things to see. The building looks old but inviting and the location is easy to find.

    Huge disappointment


    The visit was disappointing, mostly video art. The highlight was a dead fly under a glass. Would only come again if the exhibition changes and provides more variety. Entrance fee is NTD 50 per adult.

    A great little museum


    This is an interesting museum showing the creative arts of the young people of Taipei. When I visited there were a number of what looked like arts students there. There was also a great room for children and when I enquired they run regular workshops for children of all ages. It was a fun atmosphere and kids would love it. If you are 65 or over entrance is free.

    Well-curated, interesting building layout


    We visited during their 'scary stories we tell ourselves' series. An interesting mix of art, stories, and installations from a wide array of artists and their interpretations. There are scannable barcode guides in each room for samsung users (bring your own earphones). Toilets were sparse but clean. The playroom for children was designed beautifully. It costs 50TWD to enter. There are lockers for bags/things bigger than A4. Very interesting place to visit. Glad to see Taipei nurturing their artists. Stairs abound and uneven surfaces. Not sure if there were elevators for people with mobility issues.

    Very Busy


    Went during the week of lunar new year. The museum was so busy it was difficult to see most displays. People were pushing and blocking sight of the exhibits. Lots of historical pottery and art sculptures
