Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    The Museum of Contemporary Arts, Taipei (MOCA) is housed in a building dating from the Japanese colonial era (1895-1945). It was later the headquarters of the Taipei City Government. Contemporary art often involves installations and paintings that may seem odd.

    This is a lovely museum in a heritage building. Dating back to 1962, this building was formerly a Pharmacy. After being left unused for a long period, It was purchased by Ms. K.C. Chen (Eva Tan, 陳國慈律師), and was revitalized into a museum and cultural center.

    It is a modernist style building, with terrazzo as the main construction method in the interior. There are exquisite terrazzo pictures on the floors. For example, "ginseng plants" on the first floor, "grapes" on the second floor, … etc.

    The exhibition's themes cover the fields of "traditional living culture" and "old buildings". The current exhibitions are “Pickling and Marinating” and “Year of the Tiger”. In addition to exhibitions, the museum also holds lectures and seminars to let people know about traditional life and culture.

    Free admission. The volunteers are attentive and top-notch.

    It was a very hard-breaking, yet educating experience. Similar to the war museums in Ho Chi Minh, this museum taught me things and perspectives that I was unaware before. It's small, but intimate. You'll learn from these victim's stories.

    A newly open, modern and well designed museum. It is used to be the Railway Department of the General Governor during Japanese colonial period, and now is renovated as a museum.

    In the museum, visitors can learn about the history of rail transport in Taiwan. There are also wonderful interactive exhibitions for kids. Of course, adults can enjoy them as well.

    The buildings of the museum are another highlights. Dating back to 1919, the splendid main building is a Queen Anne Revival style architecture. Along with other five historical buildings in the campus, it has been listed as a National Heritage Site.

    This is a well-preserved building with beautiful artwork.

    And there are many kinds of Taiwanese tea, the service staff is very kind and polite, you can know a lot of historical stories.

    There are works of artists from Taiwan, Japan, Britain, Belgium, South Korea, etc., all of which are pottery, as well as some glass and wood.

    Many works have a good taste.If you want to buy some art, this shop is a good choice.

    You can visit the building for free, but the toilet is not open.

    If you take a closer look, red bricks and stones are old monuments, ceilings and wood are new, and you can see that the owner spent a lot of money to renovate.
    If you have time, staying here is comfortable.

    這是一座保存完好的建築,擁有精美的藝術品。

    裡面有賣很多台灣野生茶,服務人員很有禮貌,可以了解很多歷史故事。

    商品有台灣,日本,英國,比利時,韓國等藝術家的作品,不多是陶器,還有一些玻璃和木頭工藝作品。很多都有很好的品味,如果你想買一些藝術品,這個商店是個不錯的選擇。

    您可以免費參觀空間,但廁所不開放使用。如果仔細觀察,紅磚和石頭是古老的,天花板和木材是新的,你可以看到業主花了很多錢進行翻新。
    如果你有時間,停留一下在這裡是很舒服的。
