Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum, Taito

(3.8/5 based on 300+ reviews on the web)
Admire an array of art exhibits at Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum, a cultural institution located within a wider public park. Originally opened in 1926, the facility underwent major changes in 1975 and 2010, creating a contemporary space that appeals inside and out. The six galleries host exhibits on a range of international art scenes and artists; each space serves only for temporary shows, as the museum does not have a permanent collection. Head back into the European Renaissance, get to know contemporary Japanese artists, or admire folk art from across the globe at this ever-changing venue. Check the website to see what's on currently. By using our Tokyo travel itinerary planner, you can arrange your visit to Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum and other attractions in Tokyo.

  • The closest think JR Ueno Station Park-guchi, but arrive at about 10-minute walk from Tokyo Metro Ginza line and Hibiya line Ueno Station No.7 exit. But it seems so much new building has been renovated and restrooms, it was beautiful. "Titian and Venetian school exhibition" was made to this day. Had the front of the painting's eyes did not feel that we seem to be incredibly crowded on Sunday mornings, "Flora" and "Danae" crowd. Also in the stub of this art exhibition, Ueno ecute and Arte (I had done previously, but did not notice until now) get such discounts. Is not subject to all the stores you want to go and shop there services just the'm glad planning thought.

  • I went to Titian and Venetian school exhibition. On Friday morning we were asked. Friday until 8 pm so is great for company employees. Lockers are 100 yen in a return expression. Each work was seen slowly.

  • Was just last week, watched the Oakland Museum, the difference between the overseas big boosters in the. I had bumped backpack when you do not check the first, Luc was forced not to enjoy watching people turned around and to dampen appreciation of painting experience. Is left to the individual, have a locker just like you.

  • One of the dullest art museums I've been to. Only free exhibition during my visit was The Calligraphy which was plain boring too. People are quiet and whispering, like they are in a spiritual place. Also bad air ventilation and dull interior.
  • This gallery frequently has exhibits of very significant important art collections. I've seen Warhol, Lichtenstein, Van Gogh, and Niki De San Phalle so far. Tokyo is a great city for art, and this is one of the best galleries around.
  • Nice museum which has a lot of brochures containing information on art exhibitions. There's also an umbrella rack with locks at the entrance in case of rainy days. On Saturdays, the poor queue up at 11:00 nearby in threes to receive food which is distributed at 13:00.
  • Very nice museum to visit, but know when to go ^_^ Do your research on the Internet before going, ensure they have a nice attraction in which you will be interested in viewing. When I last visited they had the Ancient Egyptian display, very nice 😀
  • Nice museum showing famous artists' work
