“This Place is a Walk in the Park!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

The Fine Arts Museum cannot be beat in Kaohsiung, for the mainstay, regular exhibitions are free. The only time you pay is when you want to enjoy one of their visiting exhibitions, which have included Warhol and Dali in recent times. If you repeatedly visit, you might grow weary of the same exhibits, but as a traveler, you'll certainly find it worthwhile, that is if you like museums in the first place. Although we are travelers elsewhere, I am an expat here in Taiwan (with no connection to the museum), so we have the pleasure of periodically visiting the museum. Especially on a hot, humid southern Tiawan summer day, this place provides a wonderful sanctuary. Moreover, it is located in a lovely park, one that gives you a well-deserved change of scenery from the otherwise urban landscapes of Kaohsiung. There, one can stroll the walkways, lounge in the grass by the lake, or take a gander at the sculptures in the garden. If I were on a tour of Taiwan, instead of living here, I would, indeed, spend a few hours here.

“Very crowded place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012

Is a good place to learn chinese culture. The cabbage and the pork are a much see item. You can rent the audio to know more about the displayed items.
The place is very crowded and is full of tourists.

We had a pleasant morning visiting the art museum. Normal entrance may be free, but we paid for special Mucha.

“Worth the visit, price is right!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2012

Brief visit to view the Alphonse Mucha special exhibit and contemporary Korean artists exhibit. Both were interesting. Compared to museums in the West, entry fee is very reasonable.

“Wonderful Exhibition”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2011

I had the chance to visit the museum when it had an exhibition of Amedeo Modigliani's works. The museum regularly has great exhibition and you should check their website or English brochure (available in their front desk). The museum also exhibits local arts. Unfortunately some parts of the museum was closed when I visited. There's a gift shop on the main lobby with some interesting souvenir. The park outside the museum is quite nice & large as well.

The museum entrance is free but if you want to see the main art exhibition (optional) you have to purchase a ticket.
