I would agree with other contributors that unless you are a keen follower of Noh as an art form then you could give this a miss if time is tight. That said Noh is a large part of historic Japanese culture so we thought our visit worthwhile. A modern museum, but with most information in Japanese. Additionally, for those so... More

This place was worth a visit just to try on the mask and kimono! There are many different masks you could try and it was fun to take our photos. There were some nice fans on display and the lovely ladies there went out of their way to ensure we were looked after. The video was also interesting to learn... More

I am not big fan of Noh but I went there because it was close to 21st art museum. The museum is small and many place you can't take picture. You can dress up with Noh Costume so that's what is most worth, the museum is mainly in Japanese so unless you can read Japanese, there are many things you... More

After strolling through the Kanazawa Gardens and the Contemporary Art Museum we needed a break. The Noh museum is right there and the lady attendants who help dress you were fun and into making you look good! The museum is small and easy to do in less then 1 hour. There are some great candy stores nearby!!!

It's a good introduction to noh theatre just round the corner from the 21st century museum of contemporary art. The craft of creating the masks, the costumes and the actors are laid out in its splendor.

We happened upon this museum because it is very close by to the 21century museum.I was attracted by a poster in the window showing a sword and the staff went out of their way to explain about the dressing up opportunity. The museum itself is very small.Upstairs there are some costumes,some swords and some design drawings.Downstairs there are Noh masks... More
