The permanent exhibition is not that rich but is really well organized in sections and allows visitors to travel into different ages of contemporary art. It worth a couple of hour visit!

Saw this place on the map whilst staying in Sumida. Figured I would wonder in and check it out. There were 3 separate exhibits that day. One was a child's exhibit but didn't realize that until going inside. That was a wonderful experience. Two little guys up in a large "fun box" were reaching down to me as I rounded... More

There was no show at the time we went, but we had seen the building from the sky view from Roppongi Hills, and were nearby. So glad we went as it is a great space, even with no art to see. We just walked around, and didn't have to pay for an exhibit. (Actually there was a show of local... More

The permanent exhibitions are definitely worth a look. Make sure to give yourself plenty of time to meander through the displays (last entry is 5:30pm with closure at 6:00pm). When I visited, there was a great exhibit where you lie down on soft cushioned flooring and watch a video image on the ceiling.

This museum was a real delight, getting there was easy enough and it is a nice area to wonder around in as the sun goes down. The special exhibitions that were on were Tokyo Art Meeting III and MOT Annual. These were playful exhibitions and were presented expertly with helpful staff and full English notes. It was a real joy... More

Enjoyable museum and area to visit. Part of fun visiting Tokyo is exploring the many different disticts and finding little surprises in them. This was #2 of 3 on a one day museum-hopping trip in Tokyo. I was staying in Asakusa/Sumida, and first visited the Edo-Tokyo museum(open earliest)(E-12), then Museum of Contempoarary Art (E-14), then the Bridgestone museum of art(open... More

Was great to see some of Yoshitomo Nara's earlier works hanging in this museum. A nice space to spend a couple of hours (or more in). Can recommend the downstairs restaurant as well had a great lunch there.

Some big names pop up here and there's plenty of space to showcase some more impressive sizeable installations that would look worse elsewhere. Wish there was more information in English about some of the works - found that hard to come by in some cases

After crossing all Tokyo to see an exhibition I was extremly disapointed to find out that there was no information in English except the name of the artist, which is not enough for Contemporary Art. The building is really cool but not worth the trip as you won't understan anything if you are not a master in Contemporary Art.
