  • I went with DALI exhibition, exhibition of JAKUCHU. Location is very convenient in the heart of Kyoto. Visit together, want to go see the picture near the hosomi Museum, Museum of fine arts, so might be good.

  •  Seismic has problems and it is under construction. Not seem to lack of respect for the artists and their works comes exhibits here, but even if it did not, in the For example, has had exhibits of ITO JAKUCHU 2016 fall anyway many people! Yet so completely without admission restrictions almost put intact and were said to be properly seen works. Caring and bad attitude is seen in people who, for example, would keep moving were also without many people are looking at it jiiiitto stopped. It is a put too much after all. This is the worst! Kyoto National Museum admission restrictions. Long wait outside. But you put in properly seen from the city.  I want to be put there name once again by naming some companies put on a Crown is, but if you're more out of respect to artists and works out on the front display. All caption here. But do not think so rent earphones. It was also that there are mistakes in the catalogue. Really do come on also the profit principle. Just how bad a curator's! Listening to the city, Jonah (mad).

  • Because in the Dali exhibition was from Tokyo was held to Kyoto at the same time held also exhibition of Salvador Dali prints Dali's work could enjoy. Many felt works fewer than 2006 Salvador Dali retrospective (the Ueno Royal Museum), rich. But the crowd was awesome. While film is phantom collaboration collaborative works with Luis Buñuel, Alfred Hitchcock and Disney animated films, is not to be missed. Naturally refreshed and go outside if the Kyoto Municipal Museum of art, completely exhausted in the crowded Museum, watching great Torii or shrine to breath. Love is a museum located in a somewhat mysterious place.

  • We visited this museum during the Renoir exhibit which was very interesting and had pieces borrowed from collections around the world. Very beautiful area and quite affordable visit prices.
  • Dali exhibition! Talk about good timing! 16$ to see everything but the famous works, aka the real bulk of an artists work. Great exhibition.
  • An excellent place to view an exhibition of various art. Rated 4 out of 5 stars as an international tourist attraction ,has an insufficient number of English signs, and staff capable of speaking English.
  • This is the first museum I visited in Japan. They have always organized the special exhibition event. It's so valuable to spend time there.
  • I like some of their exhibitions. It always busy though. The building is nice.
