Es ist eines der größten Museen Asiens.

The Museum is dedicated to the education and promotion of visual arts.

Its aims are: to organize the most diverse range of themed visual art exhibitions, to foster long-term art exchanges with overseas institutions, to actively participate in major international events, to promote art education, and to provide the public with a pleasing and multi-faceted environment for viewing art. Through cooperative research, joint-curatorship, and equal exchanges, the Museum has maintained positive interactions with museums internationally. Exhibitions curated with a focus on Taiwanese art and collections have been held in major art museums in France, Poland, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Japan, Korea and the United States to introduce Taiwanese Art to the world.
