  • ¥1000 for a ticket. No photos/video allowed and no audio tour when a special exhibition is on. There's an app if you ask for instructions at the front desk, but I was told that it doesn't include content for the exhibitions which take up the whole of the museum. The artefacts were beautiful, but I missed a lot of the experience because I couldn't speak Japanese. Probably budget 30 minutes for English, 2 hours if you understand Japanese, it's fairly small. Didn't feel like value-for-money due to the above.
  • disappointed not to be informed of the total lack of descriptions of the pieces displayed in English during the ticket purchase. it's not for the price. the question is that a tourist can not appreciate the full visit without knowing the Japanese.
  • They have interesting items, but if you've been to the Louvre in Paris for example, you won't be very impressed. Information is not translated in English enough but the staff is nice.
  • You can learn via the ancient Silk Road is hard to place in a building quiet good and suits and the contents of the Museum were culture and religion are hung from this region long time throughout Asia, was also Hope is a precious thing I felt indescribably precious photos of past days of Middle East extremist organizations say idolatry and destroyed Palmyra and models are on display,

  • Buy audio guide with Smartphone apps. So very easy to hear the interesting content is recommended. Audio guide exhibit reminder.
