And one hour inside to see a pumpkin! They only let us inside the mirror room with a group of people after all the wait! Really frustrating. A waste of time.

We could not get in to gallery with the famous pumpkin installations, but next door... More

My mother and I visited for the Yayoi Kusama exhibit. This gallery didn't seem like much, but it was a bustling hub with the 3 long lines to see the exhibit's pieces. The staff was nice, calm, organized, and made the experience waiting in line better. The gallery was very spacious. We appreciate the free entry. Thank you for the... More

I went to visit the Yayoi Kusama and it was wonderful! The show was great with a special mention to the staff who were great with all the visitors. There were queues but it didn't seem to take that long. Very bright and spacious gallery.

Paintings glow on the... More

We went to see the Yayoi Kusama exhibition. It was well displayed and the staff organised the visitors very well. We had to queue outside even before the gallery opened and there was a constant queue all the time we were there. It took about an hour to see all the exhibits and you are only allowed 35 seconds inside... More

It was quite a big gallery and artworks were nicely presented individually. However I did find the mix of two very different exhibition a bit less entertaining (mixing work of Yayoi Kusama with a B&W photographer) . And the way that the exhibition walks was not able to bring the audience into the story. The building itself was also too... More

Short term exhibition but very much worth while. Attracts ques for a very good reason. Spend the time try to get in and you'll be rewarded with a very powerful experience.

Not really being an arty type, decided to visit one day as I was working locally at the time. It was a very pleasant surprise as the exhibits were very much to my liking. The gallery is large and includes external exhibits. A very pleasant hour or 2 taking in the ambience.
