Got lucky and visited during the special exhibition on displaying works done by ghibli (a film company, most famous for works by hayao Miyazaki). Lined up for 20 minutes for the ticket and another hour for entering into the museum. It's packed, yet everyone was...More

A small museum but worth the ¥500 to see Dali’s Dream of Venus. The museum’s art collection is small, but if you are lucky there could be an interesting special exhibition on the 3rd floor.

Small museum but attractive, located beside beautiful Shukkeien Garden. This garden was built in Edo period, Japanese style garden with pond and tea-house. Worth to see

Cheaper entry to get with gardens ticket, had a good look nothing special rather small walked around in 20 minutes. Best part of museum is the Italian restaurant and gift shop. I would bother unless you really really love art.

This is not a large museum. The most famous piece is Dali's Dream of Venus. Best value is a joint ticket with the garden next door. It makes a welcome break from the bustle of the city and both sightseeing loop buses stop outside.
