Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum, Uenokoen

#16 of 422 in Museums in Tokyo
Admire an array of art exhibits at Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum, a cultural institution located within a wider public park. Originally opened in 1926, the facility underwent major changes in 1975 and 2010, creating a contemporary space that appeals inside and out. The six galleries host exhibits on a range of international art scenes and artists; each space serves only for temporary shows, as the museum does not have a permanent collection. Head back into the European Renaissance, get to know contemporary Japanese artists, or admire folk art from across the globe at this ever-changing venue. Check the website to see what's on currently.

  • Went for the Bonsai Expo and it was incredible. Very well set out, easy to navigate, smiling staff and easy to know where to go. They put on a free shuttle bus to the bonsai trade fair - it was great!
  • Went to see the Munch exhibit. When you pay for a ticket it's specific to the one exhibit, so the other art we saw was a free to enter exhibit. The Munch exhibit alone was extensive though! I believe it was 3 floors full of his works. They had the original painting of the scream and it was incredible. It was nicely curated and had a variety of his work along with the story of his life. Was most disappointed that they didn't have the pikachu souvenir that I wanted even though it was available a couple of days after we went when my friends checked it out.
