Everything has been done to make the viewer feel welcome from the seats to the free lockers, friendly staff and plentiful explanation. Just loved this feast of art and the political impetus behind it, Access via an outside escalator and just follow the signs.

Located next to the Nakasu Kawabata subway station, the premise is at the upper floor. The main entry is free, but entry to specific exhibition will need a payment. They also sell books on art and other stuff. The ambience is nice, but the exhibits...More
