They have a nice selection of Rodin's statues. When there is a special exhibit on something you like, that's when you want to go, otherwise, if you are like myself, I am not so into statues, more like paintings, then this museum may not interest you. The architect of the museum is very nice and the Rodin floor is spectacular.... More

Good Auguste Rodin scultural wing with history narrated in other languages at each exhibit. A partnership with a local art academy brought too many sketchers into the exhibit making it difficult not to block someone's view.

An impressive display of Rodin exhibits. Start off with a leisurely walk through the sculpture garden, and come into the spacious museum to admire the Gates of Hell and meet The Thinker. An enjoyable way to spend an afternoon. The nearest rail station (kenritsu-bijyutsujkan-mae) is only about 15 minutes' walk away.

We came here to see the Rodin exhibit primarily. It was particularly breathtaking due to the architectural design of the space. We've been to the Rodin Museum in Paris and it was delightful to compare the way both museums choose to display his work. The Gates of Hell remains the most chilling and awe inspiring work of Rodin's and the... More

Worth a visit if you live in Tokyo. Only an hour away but I recommend a nights stay in Shizuoka city too. The museum has a great Rodin gallery and a decent collection of impressionist art. Quite impressive considering its somewhat remote location (6 mins from Shizuoka city then a 20minute walk - or bus/taxi if you prefer). The museum... More

For people living close to Shizuoka temporary closure of the museum is quite a blow. During the overhaul some of the exhibition originally for the musuem can be seen in either Sano Art Museum in Mishima and Ninoramu Art Museum in Kakegawa. Last exhibit for National Culture Festival is free of charge. I miss the museum a lot. I hope... More
