  • From 8:45, such as persons with disabilities discount window will open, were admitted from 9 am. It took me 5 hours went to various art exhibitions in Japan, but so far most and linger, even a meal. There is significant work, was impressive. Look at lots of famous fakes that photos are taken touching, without, to study is also the location of some is no Museum on the other. However, the real excitement. Works like a longer beam on a sad fake feeling strong. Is afraid of painting, such as reverse real too good might. So were a lot of people in the GW, 1 piece to dwell, easy to navigate even the popular masterpiece is not.

  • "GW Otsuka Museum of art' and searching the Internet for more information"crowded", but anyway... GW late than for the first half is still free not? and I visited 4/29. I think that the Museum is arrived at after nine, but parking is available and the Tokushima No.. The Museum did many people still slowly to watch the picture was no problem. You may eat your Bento box in the courtyard and was had a lunchtime and overlooking the sea. Restaurants and cafes, nice atmosphere, so next time I want to take us.

  • Lot of reproduction of art works with the actual size. Very nice to visite. If driving to the museum, it does have the parking in the building. If you are at the front of the museum ( guest you come by the express way), drive pass the front and you see the traffic light, turn left. Just 10-20m you will see the out door parking lot on your right. Pass the ticket gate and pick up the parking ticket, then bring it to the museum at B2 floor ti stamp and you get free parking. At the parking lot, they will have loop free shuttle bus to the museum.
  • A fantastic collection. Worth spending at least a whole day there. However getting there by public transport needs careful planning. Still worth it.
  • Not a good choice of museum if you have limited time It is good if you want to see replica of famous artwork from all over the world but yeah, only replica, nothing original
  • It has a lot of the famous paintings. However, they are replicas and are printed on tiles so the large and up paintings have obvious lines between the long tiles in them. Colors are good but are missing the eye-popping colors as expected. Most are just prints but some have texture. Great place to see many masters as long as you are not expecting the masters themselves. Tours are very informative and plentiful. Building and people are very nice.
  • Big place. Too heavy on religious art and especially scary death images. Not a place for kids. Parking system is unkind - insufficient information. At 3500 yen its over priced but where else can u see reproductions of so much art in one place? It's criticized as being fake but it's not trying to be fake. It's trying to display the art in real size images and does it quite well. But I won't be back.
