It has a nice cafe, a souvenir store and clean toilets. Also a museum attached though we were in a rush so could not visit that.

Entrance to the museum is required. However there are a few pieces displayed outside the venue. Toilet facilities and a cafe are located inside for visitors use. If you have time, it is worth to enter and learn more of the history and development around...More

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.
