“Like art? Don't miss this place”
Reviewed August 21, 2013 via mobile


Worth a visit if you live in Tokyo. Only an hour away but I recommend a nights stay in Shizuoka city too.
The museum has a great Rodin gallery and a decent collection of impressionist art. Quite impressive considering its somewhat remote location (6 mins from Shizuoka city then a 20minute walk - or bus/taxi if you prefer).
The museum is alongside the prefectural library and had a pleasant sculpture garden as you approach it. Don't miss the park on the hillside immediately behind the museum as it has a nice view across the prefecture on a clear day.

“Adieu Until Next Spring”
Reviewed October 23, 2009

For people living close to Shizuoka temporary closure of the museum is quite a blow. During the overhaul some of the exhibition originally for the musuem can be seen in either Sano Art Museum in Mishima and Ninoramu Art Museum in Kakegawa. Last exhibit for National Culture Festival is free of charge. I miss the museum a lot. I hope next spring will come soon.
