The Fangyuan Museum of Arts (Chinese: 方圓美術館; pinyin: Fāngyuán Měishùguǎn) is a museum in Jiangjun District, Tainan, Taiwan.[1]

History[edit]

The museum building was originally constructed in 1944 as the Suisheng Clinic of Huang Ching-wu, the former head of township in the area. In 2008, the building was purchased by an entrepreneur Lin Chen-feng. He then rebuilt it to be a museum of fine arts.[2]

Architecture[edit]

The building is a mixture of Taiwanese and Western architectural styles featuring the 4-section compound with corridors and arched winding cloisters.
