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.

What travellers are saying
- 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.Written 28 December 2020This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- 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.Written 1 May 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.

- 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.Written 29 September 2020
- 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.Written 1 November 2020
- the shop is great but the teahouse is superb: pure quality and tradition, wifi, good english service and all...Written 20 August 2018
- 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.
