My friends and I almost skipped this exhibit because of the below-average reviews posted by others on Tripadvisor. I beg to differ with them. The in-depth but approachable explanations on the techniques and breakthroughs that Escher made were not only educational but also intriguing. The exhibit caters to both the casual visitor and also people who have studied art/art history.... More

We spent about 2 hours to see the incredible Escher exhibit. It was a special exhibit. However, the rest of the museum took us less than 20 minutes to cover. The art was not our cup of tea. The building is beautiful, the gardens outside is pleasant. There is no cafe or restaurant inside the museum. The special exhibits are... More

Nice exhibition and relaxing place to soak in the arts. M.C.Escher was on. Interesting to see his works through the different times of his life. However, it was not place in order.

Quite happily surprised that Kaohsiung has become such a cultural destination! Bill T. Jones Arnie Zane Dance Company was in town and a MAN RAY exhibition will be at KMFA thru 25MAY!

I was able to walk through an life time exhibit for Liao Shu Ping. The exhibit was well prepared, and the collection of his art works was very impressive. I particularly like the strong tie that this museum has had with the artist himself. It took a strong relationship to have the artist's trust to display his life time work... More

I went here for the Miro exhibit, which I thoroughly enjoyed, but the upkeep of this museum seemed a bit run down. It isn't like may other museums that appear all modern and trendy. The rest of the museum is free, however. You only need to pay for the special exhibits. It is located in a peaceful side of town,... More

Similar to it's counterpart in Taipei, Kaohsiung Art Museum organized quite a lot of exhibitions for the general public. Some exhibitions were so exclusive (masterpieces by Modigliani, Mucha and original scripts of Michelangelo ) that we had to make a trip to Kaohsiung just for the sake of paying a visit to this Art Museum. The exhibits were well displayed,... More

From local photographers, City Art Competitions and more traditional stuff - it was all of very high standard. Worth a visit - think it was free too.

Diverse exhibitions and a great space. Was a central point of my visit from Taipei. Would recommend, if you are around.
