While I found the museum to be an excellent collection and enjoyed the time with friends, I would not have chosen here based on my experiences with these artifacts in Kyoto and other museums. That being said, it is very good just not for me

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!

This was a late addition to our itinerary as we thought it was going to rain. Together with the gardens (see other review) it turned out to be the highlight of our day. The museum has some amazing exhibits from the Tokugawa period and they...More

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.
