Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum, Taito

3.9
#13 of 268 in Museums in Tokyo
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.

    There are various exhibitions special exhibitions, exhibitions, collaborative exhibition. On the day of the citizens would be free. You hit the jackpot like JAKUCHU exhibition others so if you are not. On the whole, above-average so always watch this then. Where you can rest relatively often. The hotel's restaurant is always lively.

    I went to see the exhibition of the Museum of fine arts. I think the building looks nice, but closer to the entrance to building families usually feel. The 65-year-old was quite crowded and vacant went around 11 am, free next day (weekdays) is more than I thought.

    Amazing museum, full of big and small art exhibitions, the fee for the smaller ones is so cheap. It's always changing so you get so see something different almost every time.

Where to stay in Tokyo

Tokyo abounds with excellent places to stay, from luxury affairs to humble budget-friendly lodgings. Its glittering skyscrapers house numerous international four- and five-star hotels, both in the populous cultural hotspots of Shinjuku and in the business centers of Akasaka and Shinbashi. Meanwhile, hostels catering to the shoestring traveler lie scattered throughout the city. For a memorable, distinctly Japanese experience, seek out a ryokan, a traditional bed and breakfast with tatami floor mats and sliding screen doors.
