  • I visited GW in the first half. Cat exhibits, is quite interesting. Has a good collection of the 19th century, especially since the France Impressionist works to focus, such as a large Museum, clearly has thought very good. I think photo shoot you can work too good, along the trend of museums around the world. Also, I think good point if you download the software on your tablet or Smartphone can be used as an audio guide. Building and environment is relaxed, very nice. It is inevitable because the wanted blockbusters, such as which highlight if you dare to say, is that this is a recession.

  • There is a good collection of French impressionists but it is limited with inadequate English signage. There is an audio program for rent. We were hoping to also see the Mucha exhibit but that had clo...  more »
  • This museum was not well promoted but it was well worth the stop. When we visited the small galleries were adorned with some lesser-known works of the French impressionists as well as works by Picasso...  more »

  • I've never seen such an extensive collection of impressionist paintings...All by the classics. Still fangirling that I saw a Van Gogh. I guess it's been a quick minute since I've been to New York to see their collection...so I'm sure I've seen some there now that I think about it. If you have any liking for impressionist art, this is a place for you to check out. 600 yen for entry and four galleries. I read some reviews saying it was confusing about pictures, and I agree. There are some signs at the entry to the gallery that no pictures are allowed...but then there is one sign that says only those that say no pictures can have no pictures...very confusing. And then the pamphlet is very confusing as well...I suggest you ask upon entry whether you can take photos. Obviously you definitely shouldn't be taking flash photography, but I don't know about normal photos...
  • A beautiful gallery. There’s 4 halls with a lot of name artworks. Very quiet and tranquil. They have amazing socks in the gift store! A little confusing whether photographs can be taken or not (one sign says no flash, the other says no camera...)
  • Surround yourself in the quiet prestine grounds of this beautiful museum. - no photography allowed
  • It has 4 hall showcases. And every second Saturday, It is organising music concert.
  • Wonderful museum and good exhibitons, sure recommended to others.
