The building itself was a modern architecture of Japan for per Tatsuno long (吾 Kim, 辰) is already in the works of historical places, is used as an exhibition hall and an inner Hall got a whole wide variety of currency in the world in the space, you can see them. On the other hand, often up to the second floor exhibit theme exhibition held in doing so this would be worth a visit in accordance with. The only architecture in the late 1980s when the outside of the circular restoration past and equally, but the Interior is a modern form of reconstruction is put in mind that would be nice.
