  • Great history and artifacts! Recommend visiting if you have the time.
  • Awesome collection and great exhibitions from time to time. The souvenier shop is very cool.
  • This is a must see Japanese museum. The quality of the art collection is first rate and includes art from a number of Asian countries. The museum itself is stunning and easy to visit. You can easily spend three hours enjoying the beautiful collections exhibited. The museum also has special exhibits but reservations are usually necessary and may still involve quite a lengthy waiting in line.
  • Audio description available on multiple languages. Big selection of historical artifacts ranging from 1300s to the start of globalization
  • Not as much in the museum as expected. What was there was very repetitive, I lost interest 3/4 of the way through.
