I often take visitors and friends to this museum when they come to Kaohsiung. They have had some very good exhibits recently and the big park around the museum is a great place to take a walk or hang out and visit.

With five floors of exhibition area, there is a lot to see, from classical period to modern art. Figure on spending several hours here.

This place has always something of interest. A few permanent pieces in the lobby and outside. The layout is very good and has many options for different exhibitions. Great shop.
