IF the yayoi kusama exhibition is still there this is a MUST see if you like this description. The collection is very playful and has several small room set-ups that surprise you with mirrors, glow-in-the-dark and lights. That makes this special exhibition a bit of...More

I had the pleasure of getting to see the Yayoi Kusama exhibition which was amazing! I think they have some of her works there all the time.

I visited Matsumoto to see Yayoi Kusama's exhibition and it was worth making a trip from overseas. I had seen a big exhibition in Tokyo last year, and I agonised whether I should make a trip and I am glad that I made an effort....More

Wonderful colorful exhibit. No wait lines like Seattle; Washngton DC;Toronto. Very, very reasonable admission price. Pleasant café with good food. Kusama Yayoi's exhibit was the highlight of my recent visit to Japan. Enjoy Nagano-ken soba and the Matsumoto Castle, too.

Well known artist of Matsumoto, Yayoi Kusama's passionate collection can be seen here. Special exhibition is held until July. Personally, I think inside of Yayoi is chaotic, she keeps herself by creating. Her pieces are her soul, they ask us who we are, what we...More

There's a permanent Yayoi Kusuma's exhibits as well as a special one when we were there. Really worth going to see Matsumoto's very own genius and learn more about her inspiration and how she started.

We didnt know much about Yayoi Kusama and were lucky to visit while there was a special exhibit, All About My Love. One of the best art shows Ive ever seen.

We were fortunate that we visited the Museum whilst they have an exhibition of Yayoi Kusama Art. This incredible Matsumoto artist has produced some stunning art over the past 60 odd years. We enjoyed the paintings as well as the sculptures (pumpkin). However the light...More

Home town girl Yayoi Kusama gets her own limited exhibit here only through 22 July 2018. It’s FUNtastic. Titled “All About Love,” the exhibit takes up the second and third floor temporary spaces. She is a giant of the avant-guard art world and still working...More

They limit photography within the exhibit to just one large room where about 40 of her square canvases are shown. The entrance fee is ¥1200, well worth it.
