This is a surreal experience to put it mildly. You'll walk through the most spectacular buildings dug into the earth. Vast galleries with nothing but natural light flooding in. Holding the most beautiful pieces of art. You'll most likely be on your own in each room as the island and the museum are in a remote place with very few... More

Just walking around without seeing any art, you are still part of the art, the architecture of Tadao Ando is so discreet and yet important. The monet room was mind blowing and James Turrel was a trip!

Simply stunning architecture and artworks, with none of that "hotel guests only" nonsense you get at Benesse House. Most beautiful architectural spaces I've been in my whole life. This museum alone is more than worth the trip to Naoshima. An experience I'll remember forever.

The best museum on Naoshima has it all : the architecture of the building is sublime and the collection is magnificent. It isn't cheap ( ¥ 2060 ) but you'll get value for money. 5 water lilies paintings by Monet, intriging work by Walter de Maria, even one work in which you have to participate yourselve. Truly a museum to... More

This is so luxurious to have all the space for these works. I have never seen Monets look better, and "Open Field" is amazing.

A museum with only three artists on display, but where then building has been built to match the art and not the other way around. And the result is stunning. Even Monet gets anew vibe in this space.

I initially found this museum to be cold in it's design and function, but it grew on me, and by the end of the experience I loved it. There are only 4 works. It is expensive at 2000yen pp. But the experience is still with me which counts for something - it is memorable. The Monet's were stunning, and the... More

Walk or bike around the 3 Ando Tadao designed concrete masterpieces in close proximity. The Chichu is the most expensive at YEN2000 pp probably due to the Monets. The experience is worth it. No photography
