What a fantastic place!

We stumbled into this museum by accident. It is definitely one of the best places I have ever had the luck to visit. Would return in a heart beat.

Among my many visits to Tokyo, I've to say Mori Art Museum is the only place that filled me with disappointment. Everyone has their own perspective about arts. But somewhat, the overall quality of art displays at the Mori Art Museum, to my surprise, is out of my understanding of modern arts. Artists use their artworks to communicate with the... More

The museum is a curious collection of work exploring the world outside of our own. It was interesting with some beautiful installation. What made it for us was the viewing deck - best view in Tokyo and you could see Mt Fuji.

The Mori Art Museum includes opportunity for a "starry show." The show is okay but the view at night allowed us, visitors, to see how lit the Tokyo Tower is. Go with a partner to see how romantic the view is.The museum has a lot of information which is very specific to the Japanese's current culture.

I travelled from Kanazawa just to see the Video Hiroba exhibition as I'm a huge fan of Toshio Matsumoto. First, it took me 30 minutes of wandering around to find the entrance, as the directions on the website are vague. Then after telling the clerk which exhibition I wanted to see, she gave me a blank stare and said there... More

Went to the Mori Museum which had all kinds of exhibits about space. Ancient representations, Buddhist observations, and early star chart. There was modern art inspired by space, NASA and Russian technology. A 1/2 scaled satellite, and model of a space shuttle launch was on display. All in all, pretty cool.

I went to see the Universe and Art exhibition. It was great, I love astronomy and space so was perfect. The location of the museum is also amazing- the view of Tokyo is breathtaking from the museum, plus you can take further up to the sky deck.

Great Space to hold exhibitions with a fantastic view. But depends on the exhibition I suppose. I went to two different ones and one was only in Japanese (sucked) while the other one lacked intellectual depth (space exhibition). They should tell gaijin at the entrance if nothing is translated...

The ticketing procedure is very confusing and not explained properly on the website or in LP, so I'm going to try to explain it here: There are at 3-4 different attractions which have the same entrance: 1) Mori Art Museum which hosts temporary art exhibitions, the current one is 'Art and the Universe' 2) Possibly another temporary art exhibition ticketed...

Current exhibition is not doing good to its reputation. Although exhibits are rare, unique and probably very hard to bring over, it is just not what I feel an art fan is looking for. I was really dissapointed. Also, I believe that I read somewhere that a ticket to the museum gives you the option to go ti the observatory.... More
