This is a fine art museum with some very nice impressionist paintings and Renoir sculptures. An added bonus thru May 27, 2018 is an exhibit from the Prado.

Definitely worth a visit if you are at all interested in art. This museum houses a decent sized collection of western art. In my mind an ideal size - big enough to satisfy and make it worth it but not so big that you get...More

I liked it so much! And found unfair that such a nice museum is not well advertised, and does not appear in the Top10 Tokyo attractions, where its place should be! Interesting building, nice sculptures inside and outside, beautiful paintings, many impressionists in the permanent...More

This place is highly recommended for ppl who are interested in Monet, Renoir, and Rodin. Museum has lots of art pieces and is good place to travel quite and calm. However, the moving line inside museum is quite confusing and space is too vast.

We have visited the Western Art Museum a number of times. This time it was for the Prado Velasquez exhibit . WithThe audio guides it was a plus.

The building is more interesting than the collection, which doesn't have any really outstanding pieces. Any US big city has a better collection of Western art.

This museum is located at the entrance to Ueno Park with great transport links. The admission of 500yen for adults covers the permanent collection and you also have the option to pay extra to see the special exhibition as well. I found this a fantastic...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
