  • Nice collection of art, but all just copies. Way to spend so much when you can just put a similar poster on the wall. They have spent so much money on this museum, they should have had some nice origi...  more »

  • 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.
  • It's worth visiting as you can see so many famous artworks from around the world, even if they are replicas.
  • Good arrangement for re-entry to see the Whirlpool in the middle time
