I attended a exhibition of Japanese buddhist sculpture-the exhibition was outstanding marred only by the fact that there was no English guide and limited information on the exhibits themselves.

I went there with a tour group. It was nice but me and most of the group wasn't really interested in the stuff. I might go again as there was too many people there.

三井財閥所蔵の、中世から近代に至るまでの様々な美術品や工芸品を主体に展示されている美術館です。明治期に建築された三井本館のクラシカルな外観とは打って変わって、美術館内は近未来的な印象を受けます。展示室の数は多いですが各部屋の広さは大小様々。しかも整然とした配置ではなく、他の美術館とは異なった配置で、且つ内装も落ち着いた暗め系から明るい白系まで。次はどんな部屋だろう、どんな展示なんだろう… というワクワク感を持ちながら美術鑑賞巡りが出来る、そんな美術館だと思います。 美術品は勿論ですが、個人的には出口近くにあるアメリカ・モスラー社の書庫扉。かなり圧巻で、これだけでもこの美術館に来た勝ちがあるのかもしれません。 It is an art museum where works od art and crafts from the Middle Ages to the Modern Ages held by Mitsui Zaibatsu(Giant family concern) are exhibited. The Mitsui Honkan(The Mitsui main building), which has this museum, is like a classical building build in Meiji era, but the inside of this museum is very modern impression. Although the number of exhibition rooms is large, the size of those rooms is various(large and small). Moreover, each room is not arranged neatly, it's lika e maze. In addition, there are various atmosphere inside from brightness to darkness. I think that there is contrivance that you can enjoy not only exhibits but also the exhibition rooms themselves. Nevertheless, what I paid most attention is the Mosler Safe Company's Archiving Door near the exit!

This museum is easily accessible from Mitsukoshimae exit A7 which leads almost directly to the entrance to the museum. The exhibitions that are put on there seem to be quite niche and upmarket. One or two of the staff speak English and English language information is available and/or downloadable from their website. The exhibition that was on when I went was on the Performing Arts of Japan and some of the exhibits were very old (one mask was about a thousand years old). No photographs are allowed. There is a souvenir shop which sells exhibition catalogues and a small restaurant
