  • Knowing and doing so early in the exhibition, was a trip we went to see. Morning 9:30 making quite column when you come ago could readily admitted that the side by side. In was hit like it was during the great. I will do the picture too early off from open young off the exhibition many times. (Lol) 1,300 yen admission fee. Great! I guess. Staff can store their luggage in a locker.

  • Museum of fine arts itself change the story (expansion? ) Construction has begun, but the original building is now a Kyoto artist, Ito JAKUCHU exhibition in. Around the country become popular... lined up a little, buy a ticket, entered. Jakuchū was once published textbook and work to get the... was a fullness of the heart. Unfortunately seems to be up to 12/4.

  • 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.
