Convenient by a subway stop and nearby large park and other museums. Standing work is good representation of Euro (and a few N. America) works. Special exhibit this summer on the work of Arcimboldo. Incredibly interesting, unique and presented very well. Good restaurant and gift...More

Their collection of art is absolutely stunning. The layout of the museum is done very well so you just basically go in a big U pattern so not to miss anything. I think it was @ ¥600 to get in. Don't really remember but I...More

The museum is right in beautiful Ueno Park and had a surprisingly broad collection of great works, including Renoir, Gauguin, and several Monet to name a few. As a fan of Gauguin and Monet I was delighted to add to my collection of original viewings,...More

The National Museum of Western Art in Tokyo has got some really cool art. It was not half as packed as the Metropolitan Art Museum. Of course, there was no special exhibition in the Western Art museum. It doesn't take much time to finish seeing...More

I went to see the Rodin sculptures and I'm glad I did, but this is really a poorly designed facility to showcase the collection of art and sculpture. Many of the ceilings are low, many of the rooms feel cramped, and the finishes (floors, walls)...More

Spending about an hour in this art gallery allowed me to see some impressionist art that I had never seen before, even in books. The collection is not huge, but it is a wonderful way to spend time if you are an art fan.

This museum houses a nice collection for a stroll. The cost of the museum is very reasonable 430 JPY.

Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old
Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa.
Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit
a variety of different museums and galleries. At
Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the
grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed
alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at
the end of the year, when many people go on shopping
