  • Fantastic museum. This might be the best art museum I've ever been to! So much fun, so well maintained. I recommend this place enough. You can spend a good few hours here. There's something for everyone. I was surprised just ow big this open museum is. Very good value for money.
  • Excellent place to view all the creative exhibits. Good to spent half a day there. Lots of open space. Nice gallery with lots of exhibit for those loves art. There is also some play exhibits for kids to climb and play. Wonderful concepts.
  • This museum is truly amazing! Give yourself at least 2 to 3 hours to properly enjoy it. The Picasso museum itself is outstanding and these so many little books and crannies within the museum to find and explore. I almost went back since I was a little rushed at the end
  • Oh wow. I love the hakone open air museum. The location of the museum was amazing as it is located on a very large greenery mountainous park. The arts are very impressive. I was able to interact with some of the exhibits which made my experience memorable and unforgettable. This museum is truly worth your money. There are lockers located outside for you to store your belongings at a small price.
  • Picasso and other artists sculpture and art pieces presented in an open interactive environment and gallery state. Pretty interesting way to present art forms in a mountainous natural environment rather than an artistic heavy environment. Good efforts from the management especially when they allowed free admission for children and gave out lantern for people coming in to view in the night.
