Great spot for modern art

The museum strives to offer changing exhibits by modern artists. We saw the exhibit by NS Harsha and really enjoyed it.

I've been to a few exhibitions at the Mori museum and like with all things, it will vary depending on what is being shown at that point in time. That being said, log onto their website to see if there is something that will pique your interest.

Some of the displays were interesting and some just odd. Unfortunately, we weren't that impressed but then art is like that sometimes.

The problem is that we had misunderstood the concept of the gallery. We expected modern art in general, but they provide thematic expositions and the one, which we saw (The Universe of Art...) wasn't particularly interesting for us. The admission fee is not cheap: 1600 yens for adults. Tokyo City View another 1800 yens. However, the view is amazing.

Despite having to stand in line for nearly an hour, we really loved the Mori Art Museum. However, before we saw the art exhibit, called the "Universe and Art," we went to the Tokyo City View, which inhabits the same floor. The view was utterly amazing. If you can imagine doubling or tripling the number of skyscrapers in New York... More

Though it's a bit small the exhibits were fun to see, and the view from the top was amazing. We didn't try and see the special exhibit, as the wait was over two hours.

Museum is in wonderful part of Tokyo, not just a museum, but views from top & restaurants. Multiple exhibits are the big draw... need to check schedule and have idea which show you are most interested in as they have you pay for each one separate.

Once you go to see the big spider (Maman), you can go inside the museum because is all in the same place. The museum has really update and relevant content, nothing that you could have seeing in other Contemporary Art Museum. I would really recommend this place if you enjoy new things. For me, this place was a "mind opener".

I visited during the exhibition of space and human exploration. There were a good amount of people, but not super crowded. Most impressed by the imaginary video presentation by the TeamLab. The music, the visuals were just so inspiring and exciting. About a 2+ hour visit.

Among my many visits to Tokyo, I've to say Mori Art Museum is the only place that filled me with disappointment. Everyone has their own perspective about arts. But somewhat, the overall quality of art displays at the Mori Art Museum, to my surprise, is out of my understanding of modern arts. Artists use their artworks to communicate with the... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Akasaka / Roppongi
Not so long ago the Akasaka and Roppongi areas were famous for their nightlife, high-class restaurants, bars and clubs. More recently, with the opening of Roppongi Hills, Tokyo Midtown and Akasaka Sacas, the area has declared itself as the most fashionable spot to be seen. The area also hosts the National Art Center and the Mori Art Museum and lots of trendy art galleries.
