The area
Address
Neighborhood: Akasaka / Roppongi
Not so long ago the Akasaka and Roppongi areas were famous for their nightlife, high-class restaurants, bars and clubs. More recently, with the opening of Roppongi Hills, Tokyo Midtown and Akasaka Sacas, the area has declared itself as the most fashionable spot to be seen. The area also hosts the National Art Center and the Mori Art Museum and lots of trendy art galleries.

Another Energy visit
Aug 2021
The current 'Another Energy' exhibition of female artists is excellent and well worth a visit.

Be aware that (contrary to information in my travel guide) entry for the City View is not included in gallery entry. The hordes of staff were not able to answer my question in English when I arrived on whether it was possible to buy a ticket for both, and I ended up just getting a ticket for the exhibition. As I enjoyed this I didn't particularly mind, but clarity would be welcome. And there are way too many helpful people shepherding you around the building!

Its such a gift to have good museum in the middle of the city. Exhibitions are somewhat limited and lean on very commercial side artists solid museum

Great place to visit

Great exhibitions at the top of Mori tower. No permanent collection but that doesn't seem to matter.

The best night view of Tokyo tower
Feb 2020 • Couples
The Tokyo city night view of observation deck on Mori Tower at Roppongi Hills is astonishingly beautiful but the price is kind of high compared to Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building which is free of admission.

However, it’s definitely the best spot to see Tokyo tower. You also can access the museum but make sure to leave enough time for the exhibition because it closes earlier than the observation desk.

Definitely reccomend

Super impressed with the interactive parts of this museum. Definitely would reccomend as it was really entertaining and modern. Previous visited the science and technology museum in Shanghai which was super old school. This was a really modern and entertaining museum experience! Was able to use my student card to get a discount!

Interesting and challenging exhibits
Feb 2020 • Friends
So the chances are you will have purchased the joint ticket for the observation deck with entrance and that’s covered in a separate review. The joint ticket is excellent value and I would suggest you do both.

The museum currently houses an exhibition on sustainable cities. Whilst many of the exhibits are somewhat abstract and hard to decipher the message, all the exhibits are pretty interesting. There are also things like a “living” ear made from dna from a descendant of Van Gogh! There are some more disturbing exhibits too, but I think a little discomfort is a good way to get a reaction and drive thought.

Recommended!

Spectacular views & great AI exhibition
Feb 2020 • Solo
Depending on the exhibition this really is a great place to visit. Was lucky enough to see the Artificial Intelligence exhibition - very interesting to see the current and future advanced way of community living. Also you must stop off at the Tower Viewing area which gives you an amazing view of the whole city and surrounds (including Mt Fuji). Loads of restaurant in the whole complex - so well worth a morning trip and lunch.

Three attractions in one!
Dec 2019
I visited the Mori Art Museum with my mother and nephew. The exhibition I saw included Future and the Arts - AI, Robotics, Cities, Life. This show goes for another few weeks. It's thought-provoking and worth seeing, even if some or all of the ideas shown never come to being. There are other smaller shows happening concurrently, but we did not stop to see them.

This is a good activity for the morning. It would also be nice to see at night. Spend a couple of hours and once you're out it will be close to lunch time. There are a number of easy to manage, decent quality restaurants in the Roppongi Hills complex that cater to foreigners.

You are also able to see the view of Tokyo from 50+ floors up. It's quite a sight on clear day because many neighborhoods don't have tall buildings. Once you get your bearings it's fun to find your hotel, the Imperial Place, etc. as you circle the floor.

But wait, you get more! There is also a train museum on the same floor. If you have been to Japan occasionally over the years it's fun to think back at how trains have evolved. There's a nice train / subway gift shop as well.

It’s an art museum with observatory and a train history exhibition. Stunning views atop the sky tower.
