  • I went to see a free exhibition. The exhibition was good, but the space on the roof was good.

  • It is also famous for the Suma collection of the Japanese version of 007's "Eastern Institution". The design is designed by Kengo Tsuji of the New National Stadium, designed by Nippon Design and architect. (My father is from Omura City, Nagasaki Prefecture.) The movie "Roman Holiday" was released in Japan for the first time in Japan, and Nagasaki was the fastest. And the Christian Voltansky exhibition, which is active in the Documenta and the Venice Biennale, is blessed with Nagasaki、、、、、!

  • Impressive building at the southern end of Dejima. Attended the Audrey Hepburn exhibition. I could look at Audrey all day and there were some 200 images to gaze upon but without a scintilla of English...  more »

  • This is an amazing building in a beautiful location. The standing collection is Spanish, high quality. Why not a standing Japanese collection? A great temporary exhibition was contemporary Japanese.
  • Nice modern museum, lacks sufficient airco, was really hot. Exhibition was relatively small, entry fee was fair. However we would have enjoyed it more if there was more art. Walk through it within an hour. The public gallery was really crowded and very boring. Except for the bigger Japanese drawings, which were impressive. Staff was extremely friendly!
  • A nice museum! It’s quite small (just two floors) but the exhibitions are well curated and wonderful. You can also get a good view of the harbour from the window!
  • A great place to be & people watch from the roof garden. Admission is also free for most parts.
  • nice museum near dejima wharf
