The National Art Center is a lovely building, has an art exhibition that changes every few months ( Renoir at present ), a great store in the basement and a number of food options catering for high and low price points. Well worth checking out.

Another amazing public building. No permanent collection here but a series of excellent exhibitions. This time an extensive Renoir exhibit from Musee d'Orsay in Paris. Cost 1500 yen. Nice!

I went for the recent Issey Miyake exhibition which was a highlight of my fashion focused trip to Tokyo however I was equally impressed by the stunning architecture and atmosphere. Definitely worth a visit.

All museums should be like this , cheap to go , they give you an umberella while you que to go in there is a restaurant on every floor , and shop on the ground floor , but all items are not over priced , and the people so polite , you can spend hrs in this art centre ,

The design of building of this museum is very interesting and attractive. The exhibitions during my visit were Miyake Issey and Renoir which I'm highly interested to see; however I didn't have time to stay longer and see the exhibitions, it's such a pity.

Visited the Art Centre for the Renoir exhibition and the Issey Miyake exhibition. Centre was easily accessible but is quite a long walk from the Ropponggi station. Close by to some other art galleries too.

The building is amazing, both outside and inside is exciting. The exhibitions unfortunately, they aren't equally magnificent.

I think this center is huge but has small hall,so not so tired while watching arts even if there were few chairs. I came here alone and spent really relax time. I realized that it`s difficult to see kids ,so it gave me carm ,quiet and nice time to enjoy this place.
