  • The museum showed a good modern art exhibition. It was unusually small though. The view from the observatory was spectacular, better than from the sky tree as the windows are larger.  more »
  • The Mori Art museum is located on the 53rd floor of the Roppongi Hills Mori tower. It was really busy in the ticket area but we didn’t had to wait long before we had the tickets. The super fast elevat...  more »

  • Entrance to this museum is granted along with entrance to the observatory. The museum has fantastic architecture displays and a lot of info on various things in relation to architecture. Great info, great displays, and also very long. You can cruise through a lot of it and still it would take 45 mins to an hour to get through. Personally, I think I may have spent 1.5-3 hrs in here just learning. Worth a visit.
  • They had a Japanese architecture exhibit showing when I went. It was an incredibly well-curated and displayed meticulously. Love that they disallow photography for most of the exhibit since it encourages you forward instead of forming crowds. Bonus points for writing many of the descriptions in both Japanese and English!
  • We visited during the Japanese architecture exhibit and were blown away both in terms of quality and scale. The detail in the exhibit as well as the atmosphere of very light electronic music in the background made for an enjoyable two hours. The sky view was also astonishing as we did not originally realize our ticket gave us access to this area. Great value
  • Been there 3 time me over the span of 2 months. Amazing exhibitions. Always a great experience! The City View is also a big plus! If you go mid afternoon you can see the city by day, browse the exhibitions and then return there to see the sunset/night view.
  • There was an amazing exhibition on Japanese architecture when I went, explaining the different motifs and influences on contemporary Japanese architecture with photos of many amazing buildings littered all over Japan which you wouldn’t have known otherwise. Entrance ticket includes admission to the observatory with panoramic views of Tokyo , especially stunning at night on a clear day. The observatory was full of tourists though
