A little bit expensive for non-Foreigners

There are many baskets and pottery of Japan used for everyday life. Different from fine art,folk art doesn't looks special ,especially from the standpoint of local Japanese like us.So,we feel 700 yen is overpriced entrance fee,but may be good for foreign tourists which is coming to Japan for the first time.

The museum has a collection of beautiful stoneware pots, jugs and other pottery from contemporary potters and older. There are wooden family chests as well as bamboo and basket work. There was a traditional raffia raincoat which I had only previously seen in Hiroshige wood prints. The building itself is also interesting - strong wooden beams as it was previously a rice warehouse many centuries ago.

Excellent collection of crafts

The Museum is about 15 minutes walk from Kurashiki station on the canal front. There's a small entry fee and you have to wear the slippers provided (Size 7 only). The route leads you around the building(s) and has lots of rooms that contain examples of furniture, basket weaving, fabrics, and ceramics to name a few.
Lots to see hear for reasonable price.

Atmospheric with ceramics from Mingei greats

Everything was well labelled, so the particular type or style of pottery is stated, and works by famous masters are also featured.
Additionally, Kaga Yuzen stencilled fabrics, kasuri and basket weaving exhibits also fill the museum.

Even better than Tokyo's

While smaller than the Folk Craft Museum(Mingeikan) in Tokyo, it had more English descriptions and was very easy to locate.

there is few museums in kurashiki-bikan district but if you got some spare time, you should visit, but if you don't have much time there, skip it.

Nice little museum
This museum showcases local made pottery and furniture with some other pieces thrown into the mix. These are everyday objects, but still stylish and attractive. Everyday exhibits of art. Good way to spend an hour or so for a small price.
