  • In September, Bruegel I went to the "Tower of Babel". Go to Daido Moriyama exhibition long time ago since I visit. Japan open for the first time in 24 years and was a very good crowd during the week, but still up point by point, was made of appreciating every detail. The "Tower of Babel" focus was also carefully watch.

  • Originally, this vast land is "where Osaka University". This museum was erected on ushiroji moved to Toyonaka and Ibaraki. However, so fewer people entering science and Technology Pavilion both.

  • Not only the appearance, spread to underground facilities. The conspicuous appearance itself. 2 basement floors, on the 3rd floor is the room. Exhibition of contemporary art is the principal.

  • Medium sized modern art museum, two floors of large gallery space. Exhibit when I visited was avant garde pieces heavy in the late 90's through 2000's era, which I personally detest. Installation pieces and video art that neither stimulate the mind or satisfy the senses. Good museum shop with fun crafty postcards by presumably local artists.
  • This place was quite interesting. They had exhibits in different and various meduims. From sound, short movie, scuplture, paintings, installation to live performance. They had included artists from around the world which helped the experience for someone like me who doesn't speak and understand Japanese. The exhibits are quite contemporary. You will enjoy this place if you enjoy modern conceptual art. The entry fee varies from 800 to 1200 yen if I am not mistaken. You can also buy a translator as well, which would help with the language barrier.
  • Nope not my cup of tea the exhibition that is currently on display at the museum. Travelers: stepping into the unknown. Except for the video about Flora Mayo and het friendship with Alberto Giacometti.
  • Very interesting exhibition when I went (January 2018). The architecture of the museum is quite interesting, it looks small on the surface but it’s a giant underground complex. Don’t forget your student id if you have one.
  • The museum is an exhibition oriented museum. There are two main floors where exhibitions were held by 2 artists. A sculptor and a photographer this time. Both were very interesting and had a good curating job to them. You could buy a ticket to the first exhibition, held in floor b1. The b2 exhibition ticket was for both of them. I recommend around two hours or more for the museum.
