Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum, Taito

(3.8/5 based on 320+ 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.

  • Visited the 67th Exhibition of Modern Art Association 2017. There were some really interesting paintings and installations, well worth a look for a minimal entry fee. We had coffee in the cafe,they ha...  more »
  • 日本画展的门票普遍高,800~1500yen之间,这种价格杠杆造成局面就是多是有闲有钱的老头老太太来,不同于文艺青年居多的中国。虽然带了Grutto Pass,然而也没有能免费看的展览,逛了圈就出来,可惜了这么漂亮的场馆。  more »
  • Adults and children with culture, in one of the best of the Museum of fine arts, there are definitely worth a look.

  • 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
