Love this museum. Beautiful structure itself. A lot of famous arts come here, it seems they have a good connection with art society. There are many restaurants around museum as well. Visit the museum in the morning while it's not crowded, then move to a good restaurant for a nice lunch!

Amazing architecture ! The exhibitions are clear and interesting. You could discover the magnificent about the building out and obviously in. There are coffee, brasserie and restaurant. French one "Paul Bocuse". Do not forget to bring your student card, there is a promotion. Enjoy ! :)

Must see! One of the best even though it is about 1800 yen it was worth it. Lots of interactive art pieces. The sky tower pass is included but go on a nice clear day.

Quiet with lots of artistic showcases here. You can go up to 3rd floor balcony to take a photo below. But in order to go inside and view the arts, you have to buy ticket.

One of the scene from the famous hit movie in japan, “Your name” is taken at this museum. There are a cafe at each floor. Also, there’s an art library at the third floor. Mainly in Japanese.

We visited only one temporary exhibition and were very excited. The exhibition rooms were all spacious and beautiful. I like how Japanese museums paint walls of different sections in different colours. Even though there were queues for the tickets office, the exhibition and the museum shops, the lines moved quickly and we didn't have to wait more than 5 or 10 minutes. It would have been a perfect museum visit if not for some Japanese grannies constantly trying to make their way by pushing us with their elbows and trying to get ahead of us in the lines. I was really surprised to learn that Japanese elderly people can behave like that.

The building is an impressive monument to architecture. Looks like an airport and has all the perks of an airport. From umbrella lockers to personal lockers. The lockers cost ¥100 which is basically a deposit, as you will get the ¥100 once you're done using the lockers. They're are 5 exhibition halls. Each one you get charge to enter. Which can become very expensive if you pay around ¥1,000 on each one. My recommendation use you're student ID for discounts or pick 2-3 exhibition halls you want to see. Or find a deal at the front office to access all the rooms and not be hassled on each exhibition hall. Free water is available at the cafeteria, but the food is expensive and small portioned. I spent ¥918 on a cheese cake and tea, which was a special they had. Inside the exhibition halls they have areas where you can take a break and look outside. These lounge room are located in the conors of the galleries. Also a library is available on the top floor, you can access art books and enjoy a more thorough experience.

This was such a perfect morning trip. What a beautiful place and display. Everyone was nice and helpful with my broken Japanese and I had such a peaceful and enriched experience.
