  • The penultimate construction of Tadao Ando on the island. The "Museum" is entirely devoted to works by the Korean artist Lee Ufan, founder of the Mono-Ha, from the 1970s to today. The result of the collaboration between architect and artist. The works placed outside deserve attention. The Museum is closed on Mondays, open from 10 am to 17 with 1,000 YEN entrance

  • Out of our group 1 loved, 2 hated and 1 was equivocal. Monumental works in a fabulous landscape and building as far as I was concerned anyway! 
  • Taking it all in during the onset of a typhoon, the concept of architecture and art set in the elements becomes a new dimension - Open house - a new meaning! The museum becomes art set in beautiful se...  read more »
  • A small but well curated collection of Ufan's work, and while a bit hit and miss, the hits such as Shadow of Stone 2010 and Point Line Plane 2010 (the latter can be seen without entering the museum) make a visit worthwhile. However some items such as Dialogue 2010 and Dialogue 2013 are good demonstrations that putting crap in an 'arty' setting doesn't make it any less crap. The building is also a lovely piece of architecture and a more understated work than the Chi Chu museum down the road, also by the same architect.
  • another great ando building. ufan's art didn't do it for me though.
  • Classic Japanese modern architecture - worth a visit. You can easily walk here from Benesse House - no need to wait for the shuttle bus.
  • The Lee Ufan collection here on Naoshima is world class and certainly worth inclusion in a tour of the islands full collection of works. Budget an hour to walk through the space in between Benesse House and Chichu visits; the free shuttle will stop at all three. True, there are only a few works, but each is a masterpiece and a disciplined mind will appreciate the chance to view them in a space specifically designed for their exhibition. Fewer visitors mean a more tranquil opportunity to absorb this Japanese master's art of encounter in conversation with the larger body of meditative Japanese art.
  • Amazing entrance. Small. Only a hand full of works. Chichu is better. Came here with Zuz.
