National Museum of Western Art, Taito

Home to the most significant public art collection in the country, National Museum of Western Art specializes in Impressionism. Established in 1959, the museum features a main building designed by widely revered French architect Le Corbusier, and is a work of art in its own right. Immerse yourself in two floors of diverse works, taking special note of the 58-piece Rodin collection, alluded to by the trio of sculptures located outside the museum. Stop by the shop for an extensive collection of some 3,000 books on art and design, or drop into the onsite cafe to grab some refreshments.

  • Art exhibition comes to mind and are proceeding. Even during the week before opening day that long line. Smooth induction if you open no problem. The building itself is cultural heritage, good atmosphere.

  • Le COR Vuitton I designed the building was designated as a world heritage site in 2016. Many of the works of Rodin, from the front yard to expect a collection. Built in 1959, the building itself is arranged in chronological order but a permanent collection of art pottery. Four hundred and twenty Yen entrance fee is worth every penny. Students with student ID and ... It is much cheaper.

  • By world heritage registered buildings are crowded with many people. Build a simple not so felt that world heritage sites were lined up to get inside because I saw only the appearance. I think next time I'd like to see also exhibits.

  • One of my favourite place in Tokyo! A cheap but a great Museum! You will see a lot of original western art works from styles from Renaissance, Baroque, Classical, Romantic, Impressionistic as well as Modern.
  • It's recently been made s World Heritage site, but I find it quite an ugly building, and the galleries were just so-so. The café was nice though!
  • Terrible place. Ugly rodin sculptures I came for the courbet's nude but they didnt have it on display
  • Must-visit museum. Great collection and remarkable architecture.
  • Great if you like French Impressionism. Didn't realized how much Japanese collectors liked French art.
