We went to this art museum mostly because it was close to the Science Museum, but we didn't even end up going to that one after the art museum, ha! There were several impressive works in both the permanent and special exhibitions. At ¥700 yen...More

Small collection of art with only a few noteworthy artists represented. We found it disappointing that the signage adjacent to the art piece only had the title and artist’s name in English. This is a City funded gallery and so access to funds would be...More

On this visit most of the artwork on display was a collection of mostly French impressionists. The small contemporary galleries offered only a few works by Japanese artists and there was nothing of old Japan (in another museum?). Very busy as I think it was...More

I read many different reviews of this museum, lots of people saying it was small and not much to brag about, but I really enjoyed it! Whilst the permanent collection is quite modest, there are some really interesting pieces, all of them very different! We...More

Fairly expensive for not a great deal of viewing.It's quite small so fairly limited space to showcase the collection.

3US$ gets you a ticket for the permanent exhibition, which is small and not impressive at all. After entering the exhibition, I started taking photos (without using the flash, of course), having not seen any signs nor told that photography is prohibited. After taking quite...More

The museum is right downtown, so if you happen to be there and want to check it out, it might be worth a visit. Depending on the Season, they might feature impressive collections such as Van Gogh, or local art (from the Japanese cultural flower...More

I saw just the permanent collection. Surprisingly, they have a nice little collection of Mexican art. Being from Arizona, I found that, well . . . interesting. Some good pieces, though. They have a nice, little collection of European art--one or two pieces from many...More

It was over priced for how small it was but the art was overall pretty good. It leaves a lot to be desired.
