When I visited they had an expo on Monet with paintings from the Marmottan museum. The works were well exhibited. I did not even visit the rest of the museum.

Unfortunately we didn't think about it ahead of time when we were in Tokyo and went to this museum on a Monday when most museums in Tokyo were closed. It was one of a few that was in fact opened as it landed on the...More

Worth a visit to see lots of good newer japanese art, but they hang the paintings side by side, so there is s lot, but you need to be able to focus on single painting at a time. Not so much joy in the art....More

This museum is just so amazing and open in some holidays. Located just next to the imperial palace here you can find a great collection not just of japanese artists but some really famous western artist as well.

During my visit, there was a special (and paid) exhibition of Neo-Classical paintings. It was very interesting for me. Apart from that, the museum is located within Ueno park and is surrounded by nature and other nice Museums which makes it worth a visit.

I came here primarily to see the "British Museum's A History of the World in 100 Objects" exhibit, which was a slightly higher entry fee than other museums here (maybe like $10-15 USD?). I asked a guard or someone if I could go in the...More

The special exhibits are cramped, expensive, and the museum DOES NOT limit the amount of visitors that can enter, so the exhibits are wall to wall people. You simply cannot engage with the displays since you have to spend all your time trying not to...More

Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old
Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa.
Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit
a variety of different museums and galleries. At
Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the
grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed
alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at
the end of the year, when many people go on shopping
