I was impressed by the many wonderful jade sculptures here. I was amazed at the detail of each piece as well as the stories behind them. This museum is small, but it is definitely worth a visit!

I went to the MOJA in February.
It is located in the same building on Jianguo N Road, with MMOT (Miniatures Museum of Taiwan) on the ground floor. MMOT is in the basement of the same building, on the left side.
After I read some reviews on TripAdvisor, I was not quite cleared and I decided to have my own opinion.
Here it is:
Moja is a private museum that exhibits about 10 carvings of jade. The sculptures are very beautiful, I should invent a new word to describe them. Each sculpture has its own story based on love, beauty and awakening to life. Dreamlike.
The only regret I have is that it was not allowed to take pictures.
Ticket cost 250 NTD., a little expensive, but worth every penny.
Museum hours is 10 am to 6 pm. It is closed on Tuesdays.
I have no photo, unfortunately, but memories are still vivid in my mind.
If you are art lovers, you must go.

We went to this private museum as it was close by our hotel. All the pieces are designed by the director Sofeen Hu, a native of Burma, and carved by master craftsmen. This is a traditional artistic medium entirely reimagined, transformed and brought up to date with enormous technical facility and creativity. We were treated to a guided tour by a highly educated and enthusiastic docent who spoke beautiful English. This museum is well worth the visit!
