  • First was overwhelmed and a number of works. It is great to. Able to meet many of the works, great! Saw on the trot, but took about an hour and a half. I think you'd better stopped by when he came to this local come (^ ^)

  • This museum is located 5 minutes by car from Naruto-Kita IC. The little parking, shuttle bus from the parking lot. This museum exhibit is a replica onto ceramic plates in the world famous paintings, such as the spectacular. And the replica, such as the Chapel, and many attractions. If you look at one thing and in the Museum of fine arts are very nice, round half a day or longer.

  • The world's first ceramic Board masterpiece art. Otsuka Pharmaceutical we purchased, built, like MANPADS under floor ground floor a huge Museum. As Tsukuba express Akihabara Station escalator to B3. First of all, guide and audio guide. Ideal travel guide if you're listening to in a short period of time. Can cover if you want to watch and you go along with the audio guides. A maze built so and worry about getting lost on a visit for the first time. Cafes, restaurants and rest? Because everywhere there is appreciation for chaise lounge can be used effectively. If possible, the curator's lecture to hear greater interest in painting. Most of the feet... walking shoes are important.

  • 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.
  • Nice service, very considered. All exhibits are replica. Ceramic surface does not distort the visual effect very much, but still slight distortion. Educational.
  • Spectacular museum even if you know it is only a replicas. The paintings are in real size and that makes it more spectacular. Good chance to see the most of European arts masterpieces.
  • Comprehensive collection of popular paintings( copies) from all major museums of the world!
