NileGuide Expert tip:
Check the museum's calendar for a schedule of art classes and seminars.
The Taipei Fine Arts Museum, built in 1983, contains collections of 19th and 20th century art from Taiwan, mainland China and abroad with a specific focus on modern art.
The first floor galleries currently house the Paul Gauguin exhibition, on display until February 20, 2011 as well as three sculpture courtyards. The second floor galleries rotate through the museum's permanent collection and the third floor showcases thematic exhibitions, like the Art of Liu Keng-I collection on display through April 3, 2011.
If you enjoy fine art on a scholastic level, check out the newly renovated library in the basement, open to the public for research. The library added couches and study tables, making the library a comfortable and quiet place to read or study.
