4.2/5 based on 440+ reviews on the web
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.

  • World cultural heritage is like the options! Is a cooperative building, space, ambient, i.m., and this great space and permanent exhibition offers a ¥ 420 (per adult). Even no. 2 No. 4 Saturday of each month and culture day is free! Interesting history here! I think there's interest in art.

  • Terrible place. Ugly rodin sculptures I came for the courbet's nude but they didnt have it on display
  • The more contemporary works are the most interesting.
