A wonderful but small collection of beautiful European Art Noveau glassware and furniture pieces in a very modern building. Highlight being a Rene Lalique fountain that once graced the Champs-Élysées Shopping Arcade in Paris. This fountain is certainly the centre piece of the collection and...More

Wonderful gem in the middle of beautiful Japanese villages. Beautifully laid out, with high quality artefacts. The staff was amazingly helpful - opened a few minutes early in order to accommodate us.

Not large so you can do it in a leisurely 2 hours or a quick 1 hour but well worth the entry price. The first sight of the building took our breath away, modern with heart. From the simple materials of the entry throughout the...More

What a wonderful surprise to walk from the Hida Folk Village to find this museum about 20 minutes away. This modern, light-filled building features stunning Art Nouveau works of art, mostly glassware. A highlight is a large fountain by Lalique originally built for an elegant...More
