“A Must-See in Tokyo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

The design by Tadeo Ando is truly spectacular. Even if what is on view doesn't appeal, it's worth the admission price just to check out the building.

“Closed when we were there- great building!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

Unfortunately they were changing exhibits when we were there so we just peaked into the empty space through the restaurant and windows. If nothing else, this is another Ando marvel. Lovely garden and park around it, and it's near Suntory and the fabulous shopping area of Roppongi.

“should be in top 10”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

i dont know why this attraction isnt in the top 10 of tokyo !!! you come to japan and the first thing that strikes you ( starting from their loos in their airports lol ) is their sense of design and what better place to see that than here !!!!!! It great for kids and if you are an adult , all the more reason to visit and become that kid who used to learn by understanding bit by bit and piece by piece !!! As adults we tend to stop learning but the exhibitions here , nudge you to learn by breaking down components of whatever they are exhibiting !!! keep an afternoon out for this one and its in Midtown so you will find great options to eat around here ...incase you are not into fine dining , there is a food court kind of place at the basement level which is great and a starbucks for your caffeine fix too !!!

“interactive exhibition”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

I select this museum over Suntory/Mori, given friend's high recommendation.

The museum itself is just a 2floor small building but the arrangement/presentation of whole exhibition is in interactive style. Basically, you can be part of exhibition and try lots of exhibited items.

It's esp. popular for kids/children as i saw some kids spending lots of time to try every single item.

Even as an adult, i found the exhibition quite interesting.

A bit expensive (Yen1000, but i guess that's the normal price in Japan anyway).
