Art blends with nature at this huge outdoor sculpture park, where works by both Japanese and Western artists are framed by trees, grass and mountains.

This is an outstanding sculpture park that will dazzle you. Certainly a 2 hour visit is recommended. There is a cafe in the centre of the grounds which we did not use but was busy.

Surprisingly extensive collection of sculpture. Lots of Henry Moore. Picasso exhibit is really cool - lots of ceramics and other media. Cool kinetic sculpture as well.

I don't know how to begin to describe this place. This place is a dream. Even if its raining, this place is worth a visit because the mood is different at different times, thus how you see it, also changes.

Enjoyed the art itself and especially the outdoor setting. We are not art snobs but experienced a relaxing and fun time walking throughout when the cable car was closed and some slight rain. It was not too crowded as were here after school started.

Offers a couple of nice things to do for the little ones, but at the same time there were some interesting exhibitions for us.

Worth the trip. We caught a bus and had a short 15 minute walk to the museum. It was hot so take water if going this time of year. Beautiful landscape with sculptures aplenty as you walk through the museum. The Picasso museum is indoors...More

We did not eat at the museum cafe, and there are no other dining options within walking distance of the museum that I am aware of. I suggest that you either take the train to Gora (as suggested in the previous post) or that... More
