We bought a combination ticket for which allowed us into the general museum galleries and the adjacent Shukkein gardens. (Note: This did not get us into the special exhibition galleries) The museum was OK, but kinda lacking in substance. We had come to specifically see two pictures … the Salvador Dali “Dreams of Venus” which was magnificent and the Holocaust... More

This museum is worth a stop if you have some time. The architecture of the building is interesting and creates an interesting walk through. They have a lot of French artists but minor works. When we went they were having a very interesting painting exhibition which had some incredibly beautiful screen paintings that were a pleasure to see.

This is a surprising little museum. It has a handful of significant European paintings, including a wonderful Dali, but the most interesting works are those of Japanese artists you've never heard of!

Do I have to say more? If you like Van Gogh and miss the "Paris" exhibit, then I do feel sorry for you. The other exhibits were very interesting. The museum is in the large modern building with lots of exhibits. Only wish I had the legs and time to see it all.

We thoroughly enjoyed this museum. While there are works by Western artists, we primarily enjoyed the variety of works by modern artists of Japan. The galleries are spacious and the works nicely displayed. Purchase a combination ticket that allows you to go directly from the museum to the adjacent Shukkei-en Garden.

Liked. The architecture, the spacious galleries, the out of sight resting lounges, the garden, the museum store, everything.

A nicely paced and laid out museum. There are some great pieces including one large one by Dali. There was some amazing work by Japanese artists I'd never heard of, but wish I had. The giftshop had some better than average quality souvenirs. The garden next to the museum was one of the most beautiful i've ever visited. It wasn't... More
