  • From observing the flowers in early spring in Hakone wetlands on the bus headed to the Pola Museum of art. It was a museum exhibition: hymns of peace and love "Picasso and Chagall" appeared to climb hills in the forest of glass buildings. Facing the visitors at the escalator... slowly and appreciate Picasso postcards bought at the shop, returned.

  • They have great collection of 19th century painter. If you like art and painting and whatever, it will be great for you. But if you are not into it like me, save your money bruh.
  • Great permanent collection of arts from Picasso, Monet, and others. Temporary exhibition was also very good when we were there. Pictures are allowed only in some galleries, usually only for the permanent collection I think.
  • Museum with impressive architecture and pretty expansive exhibition. Unfortunately photos are not allowed inside the galleries.
  • If you like Monet, Renoir and Picasso, you cannot miss this beautiful and modern Museum within so many fine collection.
  • Lost in mist. Simply beautiful
