The museum was a major let down following the Todaiji Temple. The exhibition was very small with only a few artefacts on display. No photos were allowed to be taken either. Would not recommend visiting the museum but definitely recommend visiting the Temple itself.

500 yen for the entrance to temple only, 300 yen more for entrance to the nearby museum. The audio guide at the museum cost about 500 yen, and the artefacts dating back to 7th century in the (quite small) museum do not have English explanation.

The small museum has displays on some old statues of religious and historical value. Just a short stop over and have a cup of tea inside the museum.

This is a very small museum close to the temple. There are a few artefacts of interest but overall I don't think it's worth a visit.

A small and interesting museum with old statues of religious and historic value. Most of the panels are in Japanese and we did not get an audio guide which seemed to us a little too expensive for the size of the museum. We walked around...More

Most people will be too busy and distracted by the sika deers around the area that this spot will be missed out

This cultural center is in the way to Todaiji temple and has many beautiful and majestic statues including one of thousand hand Avalokitesvera.

Considering that many people go to Todaiji, the cultural center is less visited, and makes a complete visit of the temple. If you're only interested in the temple, you can skip this center.
