Abeno Harukas Art Museum (あべのハルカス美術館, Abeno Harukasu Bijutsukan) opened in Abeno-ku, Ōsaka, Japan, in 2014. Specializing in temporary exhibitions, it is located on the 16th floor of Abeno Harukas, Japan's tallest building, named after the ward of Abeno and the expression harukasu (晴るかす), meaning 'brightening up'.

Queue times are very long, but they are handled well. There wasn’t much English instruction and we missed a step but the staff were willing to help us out. The building is very modern and clean, with several floors of restaurants and shops to keep you busy while you wait for your time slot.

TEAMlab installation was awesome. Perfect place to bring your kids to play out of the heat. Adults had fun too!

Bit expensive for what it was but if you have a specific interest in the current exhibition then I think you would really enjoy it. It is the type of gallery with a singular focus at a time so for those who are significantly interested in that type of art then I think they provide a well curated experience.

Quite high entry prices, but very good space for interactive exhibitions especially.

We went to see the Hokusai exhibition and were extremely disappointed. After buying tickets we had to queue again for seiriken. We waited another hour to join another queue. When we finally entered, we found there were no barriers to stop people from getting too close to the paintings, so we had to queue to see each piece of art. This caused crowds and meant you couldn`t see most of the exhibition. The staff did nothing to organize the situation. At one point a customer fell over and people were shouting for help, but no one came. Will not be visiting again.
