If I understand well they do not have permanent collection but only temporary exhibitions. And those two that we attended yesterday - Contemporary quilts and Crosscurrents - are amazing! Right place to see very special (and very beautiful!) handcrafts and to show it to screen...More

Stunning kimonos at Kimono itchiku kubota exhibition. Worth the visit. Sadly there were very few visitors on Sunday afternoon. Also there has been little to no advertising in press.
