  • Make sure to have a full meal before you go because you’ll have hangry children who will not want to leave the Museum. There is a tea shop on site, but no restaurant. If it weren’t for the pint sized,...  more »
  • Japan contemporary art often exhibits of paintings. It is to arrive before dinner or shopping in Roppongi Hills, so it's nice.

  • It is my first time to something like this and I should say that even adults like me find the museum and its art mesmerizing. The museum was built as if you were entering a maze not knowing what the n...  more »

  • A wonderful museum with noteworthy exhibitions that change every few months. I most recently saw Catastrophe and the Power of Art, an exhibition that made me both feel and think. I will be coming back for more. If you live here, you might want to look into getting an annual pass for the museum. It gives.yoy access to all exhibitions as well as the Tokyo viewing platform.
  • Modern art... It's all about how it makes you feel, whether it be happy, sad, confused, distressed, hopeful...etc. some art was cool, and changes based on what is cycling through the gallery... Had a chance to see some original art by Yoko Ono on display and it's... Modern... Some skill from the artist is questionable in my eyes because I was raised to appreciate the physical toiling in stone carvings and practiced brush strokes to simulate reality... Therefore stimulating the appropriate emotional response of respect and praise. Great place to visit to broaden your horizons!
  • Affordable & interactive exhibits with a beautiful view of Tokyo. Very well organized to offer a user-friendly experience. Visitors can easily spend hours in this highly visited attraction and also enjoy the nearby shops. Loved the outdoor installations as well.
  • Wonderful museum. Experience will obvious vary depending on the exhibition. Make sure to choose one that you are interested in. They sell the tickets in combination with the observatory area (City View) for ¥1,800. I personally find it to be a good deal. You can easily spend 3+ hours with the two areas.
  • Excellent museum with high quality exhibitions. Everything labeled in English too and great staff. So unusual to have a museum like this on the 53rd floor of a building! Great city views. Really worth it.
