There are two separate buildings. One is very small and only has one room and a hallway that I was very disappointed in. It cost 700 yen per person and took maybe 10 minutes to see the entire collection. On the other hand, the main building is rather large and had a cafe in it. We paid 240 yen each to see a huge collection of art which was very worth it. There is also a much smaller selection of art that can be seen for free. There is very limited English throughout (basically just the titles of the pieces) that could affect your enjoyment if you don't know the context behind many of the displays. There were also three different collections of art each of which you had to pay a separate price to see so keep that in mind as well.
This place is very interesting. They have many collections of historical arts mainly belong to Hosokawa family.
