  • 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.
