  • Recommended if you like contemporary art the. There was small, impact, such as the work of Yayoi Kusama exhibition. Yayoi Kusama's art is located outside of the Museum of fine arts, as the outside views. The insta shines because there are colorful colors

  • So not interested in art, but 2-year-old child and hanging out, I stopped. It is very good. I thought this funny. The children enjoyed.

  • 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.
  • The exhibits here are worth the trip. I especially enjoyed Yayoi Kusama's collection on display. The staff is friendly and the gift shop is not to be overlooked.
