  • It was a very nice museum, so I didn't have time, but I visited it a little bit. I only got around where I can see it for free, but it was quite interesting. It goes up to the rooftop. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

  • I went to obon holidays. I use it as a rest in too much heat. There were several solo exhibitions. There are souvenirs, there is a beautiful restroom, too, and it is good to use it that much. Because it is the work of Kengo Kuma, it is worth seeing only in the building.

  • This is an amazing building in a beautiful location. The standing collection is Spanish, high quality. Why not a standing Japanese collection? A great temporary exhibition was contemporary Japanese.
  • Nice modern museum, lacks sufficient airco, was really hot. Exhibition was relatively small, entry fee was fair. However we would have enjoyed it more if there was more art. Walk through it within an hour. The public gallery was really crowded and very boring. Except for the bigger Japanese drawings, which were impressive. Staff was extremely friendly!
