The museum itself is really cool but just be aware that all of the descriptions and captions for all of the artwork is only in Japanese. We went and enjoyed it, but since I don't know a whole lot about art I was a bit...More

The place is very interesting, the architecture very peculiar, has something very contemporary and something very Japan, very traditional Japan. Exhibitions cool and the area is full of surprises.

The permanent collection is a good introduction to dissenting voices in contemporary art in...More
