Tokugawa Art museum is a little and nice museum located in the Garden. It's really easy to walk and worth the visit. I spent only 30 mins as I was running out of time. No pictures allowed!.

Quite small museum and less Japanese art than I expected. Quiet and peaceful. I recommend visiting the garden, too. It's quite compact but refreshing.

This museum is mostly about a young woman from Nagoya that was married to a Tokugawa shogun during the later years of the eco period. There are a lot of artifacts in the museum, worth a visit!

Great building with beautiful vistas out to the garden and grounds. Some highly informative displays about life in the palace. Also some first class exhibits including the scrolls. Some are copies but still marvellous. Combine this visit with a walk round the stunningly good gardens.

this museum was just outstanding. All displays minimalistic in the Japanese way. Samurai costumes on display were amazing.

Nice museum, with English descriptions. Not too big, not too small, just fine to keep good memories.
