    Sistine Hall chapel's entrance from B3 (3 floors underground), will be overwhelmed at first. Murals and ceiling paintings and will watch them forever. Every corner from B3 up to 2 floors above ground, filled with the presence of Western art history, thematic exhibits, was impressive. Also, actually these paintings displaying side by side so that there would be also interesting feel. From B3 to turn up and go with the times. Going down from the second floor, is also wanted in relation to tour had been decided and 3 hours time, so slowly I saw "modern". I had to pass by, but there were a lot of crowd in the modern exhibition in Picasso's paintings, was also the Guide, otherwise it works great. I'm tired is seen in 3 hours. More slowly and over time and I wanted to watch. Still works like one day I want to go to see the real thing. To meet these works live on Earth in much of the Museum of fine arts, Museum, Cathedral and if not go? Represents a tribute to the various people involved in this museum it just works reproduced in this way. In addition, thought and want to come here.

    This museum was big in Japan until a little while ago? Now it is 2 second. Notice the mountain out of the building and on the escalator going upstairs and watching over the floor. On the escalator up floor with 3 basement floors! For a moment, flabbergasted. Many say was surprised at the force of the Sistine Hall of murals and ceiling paintings. All full size do. Another Mona Lisa, Van Gogh's sunflowers and Picasso's Guernica, the Annunciation, the last supper, etc.. Most famous paintings and murals were lined up in the Museum. I think it takes a full day and to watch carefully. 3,240 Yen entrance fee is the highest in Japan I can see why.

    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.

    Well presented. All replicas and well curated. Beautiful location. Lunch on the 1st Fl in the garden restaurant was good.

    Apparently the most expensive entrance tickets in Japan (JPY 3,500) - compared to Australia, Japanese entrance prices are rather low. It is a rich art museum owned by a well established pharmaceutical company which bought the licence to make replicas of famous artworks from all centuries - printed on ceramic tiles, to preserve them for decades into the future. You can easily spend two hours in the multi story museum, and if you want to admire the art, you may need more time. Photos are allowed, but no flash photography. Sistine Chapel replica, Mona Lisa, Last Supper, Goya's Black Paintings, Andy Warhol and much more

    Pricy, but worth it. It's interesting to be able to get so up close and personal with art.
