Have a great colocation of Asian ceramics. If you have history and ceramic, you will enjoy this place. 2 hours is more than enough to spend here. I wish there are more explanation in English.
A small museum but with some interesting exhibits.
Just Boring. The exhibition is dull and the explanations are too concise.
Fine collection of ceramics, especially Korean celadon ware. Almost no Japanese pieces, though. Detailed descriptions of individual pieces, next to nothing on broader evolution of the craft.
Disaponting...looked for japanese pottery...found mainly korean & chinese
Even if you are the type who says “ who wants to see a bunch of pots”, you will be converted by the exquisite displays, and awesome and thoughtful curation. The natural lighting is amazing!
Wonderful museum if you like ceramics even if you are not expert .these are historical pieces and national treasures. The Korean céladons are exceptional. A Must see in OSAKA.
I visited when there was special exhibition. I had one day osaka pass so i had discounted admission which was 1,000yen (reg: 1,200) It was worth it as the collection was good. Employees were very friendly. Felt sad as they had good collections from China and Korea. Recommend for those who are interestes in ceramics.
Nice museum. Don't forget to visit there
It’s a neat three-level museum with an extensive collection of Korean, Japanese, and Chinese ceramics. There is also a collection of Persian ceramics, which may be part of the permanent collection. The museum has special light wells that allow natural lighting into the displays. They have many celadon and blue cobalt on white pieces. Many displays have explanations in English. Admission was 500 yen when we visited in 2018. We walked though all he displays in about 2.5 hours.
