This was our first visit to the Mori Art Museum, and we were lucky enough to enjoy Lee Mingwei's interactive works. These all challenge in different ways what we think of as art, and also the art appreciator's place. We were not passive observers, we were very aware that we became a very real part of the art making process... More

Love the exhibit space and the rotating exhibitions. Note that recently the museum changed the ticketing and you have to pay separately for the special exhibit and the observation floor. Keep this in mind and ask about what line is for what before waiting in a long queue. Also beware - on weekends and holidays this place is PACKED with... More

We went to see the Tim Burton exhibit. It was a 2 hour wait in line but the pieces we saw were amazing. I would have loved to see all the other art. Great, affordable option for site seeing.

The view from the top of Tokyo is good especially at sunset. You will have to like modern art if you want to go to this gallery. There were one or two interesting pieces but overall I was not very impressed. The pieces featured Lee Ming Wei and I found many mundane.

The Mori Art Museum offers two things: a sky deck and a museum for modern art. The sky deck is at the 53rd floor of the building and the views are better than expected. One almost looks down on Tokyo Tower! Many landmarks like the Fuji TV building in Odaiba, rainbow bridge, Sky Tree, Tokyo Tower, Haneda airport and Ginza... More

The museum seems to refresh quite relative frequency so one of the nice things is that you'll get significant replay value from going back there. When I went almost everything was featuring Lee Ming Wei. It was a pretty cool experience. Even if you're not feeling the art itself, the museum offers some spectacular views of Tokyo, so you can...
