You can't take any pictures inside but it's great for all Ghibli lovers, you'll get to see some interesting artworks and get a better look into the production of Ghibli movies and also an exclusive short film. The short film and most of the installations aren't in English so beware, you'll likely have a quick gander and move on. You get a cool little film reel as your admission for the short film/exhibition. Great experience if you have children for to let your inner child out and explore the mind of Studio Ghibli.
I grew up on Ghibli, so this was life changing for me. They don't allow photographs inside the museum, so excuse the lack of photos. They show the process behind creating all of the most beloved films including the animation and coloring. It's absolutely amazing and the gift shop is adorable, too.
