  • Write the reviews of the Tokyo National Museum are already wrote in another, so I focused on [Gallery]. The Heiseikan includes special exhibition on the second floor in a two-storey. The exhibition times per days per floor, a café on the first floor; [Evaluation high point], Heisei-Kan also of course detailed description. And connected to the main building and so easy even when it's cold. , And little sofa on the first floor, you can rest! (The quality of the sofa also good) [ratings low point] and hot. That may be too many people. And also this is our responsibility, noisy. Exhibits is what you want in a quiet environment.

  • Looks like a picture in a quiet Museum like atmosphere to wall greenery outside the picture frame cut ahead of Hall, the feeling going into a different space on the escalator of the great Hall. It is a great space to try something, just to get there. Estimated the extra time because if you see the collection exhibition is quite nice.

  • Very big place used for temporary exhibitions of the National museum. The interesting ones attract a huge crowd, so be ready to queue for 3 hours or so after you get in (you might have to queue outside before too). The building is nice and well maintained, serving right its purpose.
  • Beautiful and modern facility as a museum and a community hall.
  • It's good
  • 2nd floor is a meeting space for special exhibitions. 1st floor is a Museum of archaeology exhibition is on permanent display. In the archaeology exhibit at the entrance greeted "haniwa armored Warrior" (a national treasure). * Look in the textbook haniwa-Kun is. Since is packed with items of ancient bronze and bronze mirrors, bronze swords,. Museum exhibition space is so large, so such as haniwa are not interested in that look good and. I can enjoy. In the exhibition room, 1st floor's has a number of chairs and sofas. Can be used as a seating area.
