  • Not only it is a very interesting place as per their location (sky deck) but they are also presenting outstanding engaged 'new' artists through their temporary exhibitions.  more »
  • We visited during the Harsher exhibition. We enjoyed the art. So did our kids. I love the fact that you can pace your way through the whole modern art exhibition in only an hour ... so great with kids...  more »

  • I visited the museum when the universe and technology exhibit was on. Really nothing impressive to see. Place is small. No natural sunlight. I normally would appreciate even a community history museum, but not this one. should've spent the money on a bowl of nice ramen instead.
  • Recently visited the museum and saw the Universe and Art exhibition which was excellent and the teamLab installation truly fantastic. Great views over the sprawling metropolis that is Tokyo from the Skydeck.
  • I mainly came for the views but this place has an unnecessarily overcomplicated pricing system. Mostly everywhere online says you can see the museum and city views together, but apparently they've changed it and the panoramic view is only part of a package with a temporary exhibit that I did not have much interest in. So instead I paid an extra 500 yen to go to the rooftop. While it's possible to get some nice shots here the view is obstructed in all but a few areas, so it really should've been free. Or they should let people buy separate tickets for the rooftop alone without needing to buy one for the museum.
  • We went to Mori Art Museum to see Sailor Moon Exhibition, and first time it was really bad experience. We went on Sunday and it was already getting crowded, and I don't mind queuing, specially in Japan, but we got tickets and we almost got to elevator and then we were stuck in limbo. Basically in those few minutes when we bought the ticket and got to elevator, they have put the 2 hours waiting sign outside. Thing is they absolutely forgot to tell us. So I am standing there with my wife and my daughter, and some friends, and I am more and more annoyed by not moving. Now unlike Japanese people I rarely queue for more than 30 minutes, I really don' t care what ever it is. So totally aggregated I went to the ticket desk to see what is happening. And than I saw the sign. I got my tickets refund and went for nice chillout in near by Midtown Garden / Hinokicho Park. I went again, on working day, early in the morning, there was short queue and spent really worthy few hours at the museum. My recommendation is to avoid this museum on weekends if you don't have Mori Art Museum Annual Passport or a friend who has one (group tickets). 11. VII 2016 Went to Ghibli Expo, it was fantastic. Again we went early in the morning on Monday. There was a short waiting line, nothing worth mentioning, but it was crowded. So plan carefully visits to Mori exhibitions.
  • Great contemporary art museum that hosts world class exhibitions of modern art. Being located at the top of Mori Tower makes it even cooler and provides you with some of the best views of the city after you have seen some of the most beautiful art in the city.
