Tainan City Art Museum Building 1 (Former Tainan City Police Department/ Former Japanese Colonial Time Tainan Police Agency)(台南市美術館一館(原台南市警察局/原日治時台南警察署))

Tuesday:10:00 – 18:00





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.
