If you've got/get gallery fatigue, it's hard to imagine a better place to come than this. Absolutely stunning art deco building with wonderful details throughout - the building alone is worth coming for. The there's a small but well-choses collection and an interesting guest exhibition. Excellent place.

The garden is closed until 2015. There is no photography on weekends (but allowed on weekdays--a rule I don't understand). Rooms are very sparsely decorated with minimal art deco items throughout. Pretty but dull.

National art centre in Minato, Tokyo.Great building with good sized galleries. There are several spacious galleries, there is a decent cafe and a good museum shop downstairs, with some seats.It worths a visit.

Go early or near closing to miss the crowds. The gift shop has a nice selection of items, and street entertainment in the area is fun.

Located up at the Tokyo City View at the Mori Art Building. Has unusual exhibits and some worth going through. You can often get a combination ticket for admission to the museum and the city view.

Free and paid exhibits. Have a theme that changes every few weeks. Art seemed to be done by students who were looking for their first break

I enjoyed wandering the dim, cool galleries on a hot summer day! The ancient artifacts and art pieces tell the story of Japanese history. The gift shop was a nice place to get nicer gifts for friends than you might find at most tourist locations.

This is a classy, quiet place with beautiful Japanese style garden and mansion which used to belong to a Japanese aristocrat. It so nice to find peaceful, quiet and classical place like this in the middle of big city. Have nice exhibitions. There is a large pond and the Coy fish here are so used to people, they come close... More
