  • No information left in the car. Had a few cars can stop parking behind the Museum of fine arts, even if Veer was tough. There are small signs at the entrance near West second thought it could stop the in-town parking lot, but a little bit more easy to understand guide is good. You can see the works of less than 30 points on the hotel and an outdoor. Striking is the work of Yayoi Kusama's art square across the street. I didn't see Rapunzel was until 5/28 are made of Super flat contemporary ceramic art of Takashi Murakami exhibition. Fragments from works is from sunset until 9:00 light art.

  • Am not sophisticated in art and stuff. But this place is nice. I walked home feeling better than when I arrived (if that even mean anything). :p
  • Very small but good for what is. No pictures allowed for most of museum though
  • 1000¥ admission with free parking for a small but interactive art exhibit. No photography permitted inside. Be sure to dress in comfortable clothing you can move around in as some displays require you to climb onto furniture to view the true display. They also have a coffee shop and gift shop.
  • I like this small museum. They have a taste, I think.
  • Small but beautiful museum with special collection of artworks.
