Small museum in which not expected anything really but we surprised, at the encounter room has several interesting pictures and outside Tadao Ando´s architecture blend in with the surroundings, providing us with an opportunity to engage in quiet contemplation

This is a much less popular attraction on Naoshima, so it is quiet, but that's all for a reason. Due to a lack of planning, we neglected to buy tickets to the "better" art museum on the island and decided to go for the cheaper, less popular option. We paid 1,300 yen to look at three rooms of minimalist/formalist art.... More

Embarrassed to admit I had never heard of Lee Ufan. We stumbled across this gallery while exploring the island on foot and were left breathless.

I have no relation to the works of Lee Ufan since before and I assume these are excellent works of his. So I am happy about this being my introduction to his works but I personally don't think I would travel to see this specifically - but I would for other works in the area so do pay a visit... More

I enjoyed this museum much more than the others. It gave me a sense of calm and an enjoyable time out. It was fun trying to find the entrance doors. Although small, it is worth the 1,000 yen.

Although the interior lighting for one room was incorrectly placed, thus diminishing the effects of the art work during my visit, the simpleness of the site, inside and out, allowed for de-stressing while visiting. The few items within the concrete edifice allow for thought-provoking.

This gallery has works of Lee Ufan, a contemporary Korean/Japanese Mono-ha artist. The building architecture, surrounding grounds and contents give a good view of his work and that particular style. The presentation is spacious so there was time and room to appreciate the works. If you are visiting the Chichu art museum this is well worth seeing as it is... More

Probably the most forgettable museum on the island, but nice nevertheless. If you have the time, drop by, but if you have to prioritize, I would skip this. Nice art outside worth a stop though!

In many respects a museum of architecture and not art. Breathtaking design complimented by cutting edge art. You wont be sorry you visited

Apparently. Lee Ufan is a very famous artist, that I had never heard of. The grounds and museum are devoted entirely to his work, but there is very little actually on display. I was reminded of the quip, "the mountain laboured and brought forth a mouse". Interesting if you are in the area but hardly worth a special trip.

Thank Craig C
