Introduce

The design and construction of the museum was a joint effort between architect Chao Yung Shih and Pritzker Award winning Shigeru Ban Architects. The main building was constructed as the Tainan Police Department in 1931. Sutejiro Umezawa, the chief engineer of Tainan County at the time, designed the Eclectic building in the Art Déco style and it is now a historic site of Tainan City. The fusion of new and old spaces at Building 1 now hosts the works of local artists in Tainan and those of important artists from other regions. Multiple art activities are conducted to support the development of aesthetics education.

    Art museum, a former police station

    Traveler rating:4 2019-07

    The fine art museum has 2 buildings, the old police station is also known as #1 building, and #2 is 2 streets away. The entrance fee is TWD$150 for both buildings. This museum has the Formosa painting in display now and it was stunning. The building itself is historical but that’s about it. I like the exhibits in #2 more.

    local arts in spacious historical building

    Traveler rating:4 2019-05

    It's former police station but now becomes a museum. When I visited, only saw the local artwork, not really creative but the content was local topics. You enjoy the spacious interior especially the centre garden and the elegant main stairs, but the entrance hall is modern design. Honestly, not many exhibits but a good place for leisure walk in a historical building with free entrance.

    因為林志玲所以聲名大噪

    最近因為林志玲的婚禮在這裏舉行,所以這個由舊差館改成的台南美術一館變得聲名大噪。他和台南美術二館相隔都是三分鐘的路,可以一日裏面順道遊覽兩個美術館。

    古い建築と新しい建築が融合

    Traveler rating:4 2019-09

    正面は、旧台南警察署の古めかしい建築だが、中庭を抜けると、モダンな建築にするっと入ってしまう面白い作り。やはり、展示物がまだまだでした。第2と第1の共通券を買って入りました。

    原本是警察局的美術館

    Traveler rating:4 2019-09

    和林百貨同一個建築師,所以外觀的感覺氛圍有點相似。中庭有一顆大大的榕樹,展覽的品項沒有很多,迴廊、拱門、大片的陽光透過窗戶灑下來,拍照效果很好。
