Delve into millennia of European history at the Chimei Museum. Newly reopened in 2015, it houses an extensive collection of European art, musical instruments, weaponry, and natural history specimens within a beautiful, ancient Greek-style building.
First established in 1992, then reopened in 2015, Chimei Museum in Tainan is a must-visit for lovers of European art. Feel yourself transported to ancient Greece as soon as you enter its compound, filled with ancient Greek-style architecture. Even before you step into the museum, you’ll get to see a grand fountain modeled after the Fountain of Apollo in the Palace of Versailles, a sculpture garden, and a majestic, sculpture-lined bridge, which leads you to the palatial main museum building. The gorgeous interiors house a sizeable collection of over 10,000 items, divided into five categories: fine arts; musical instruments; natural history and fossils; arms and armor; antiquities and artifacts. Book tickets to its permanent exhibition, special temporary exhibition, or both, to spend a day immersed in European art at the lovely Chimei Museum!
