  • This museum reflects the very creative and active arts culture of Matsumoto, hometown of Yoyoi Kusama. Great visit! Reasonably priced admission.  more »
  • I love Japan's art and this modern gallery lives up to its reputation of showcasing some of the best Matsumoto artists. Friendly staff and exhibitions changing are pluses.  more »
  • I was slightly disappointed with the City Museum of Art - I was expecting to see a wider variety of artwork.  more »

  • Modern building with a nice permanent collection of Yayoy Kusama. We loved the temporary exhibition of paintings by elderly artists. Great gift shop as well.
  • Awesome little museum. The Kusama exhibits were awesome, especially since nobody was really around to break the atmosphere.
  • The permanent Kusama Yayoi exhibition is excellent.
  • Small museum with and Hall of Yayoi Kusama
  • Yayoi Kusama room is the best. Worth come by.
