  • It is directly connected to Metro Nogizaka slope. For the first time I went to see the Renoir exhibition.

If you only enter the building free of charge.

  • Incredible building which itself alone is worth visiting to see. Seems to consistently have good exhibitions on, I visited recently and saw one about Tokyo and the future of the city which was very interesting. Two good cafes within the art centre worth choosing if in the mood for food.
  • Beautiful art space; look at the facade! However there are no permanent collections, so check their exhibition list before visiting.
  • Great exhibitions and the building itself is just stunning. Spent a whole day at the art library too, really good collection of design books. The design store is also great.
  • Very cool architecture in this building. So unique!
  • Wonderful experience overall. I was very impressed by the physical architecture and atmosphere of the building and also enjoyed the exhibits.
