I was quite disappointed by this small museum. It has potential and should take its mission more seriously and more openly. Noh is a widely underappreciated and misunderstood performing art. And no one will understand it better by visiting this place. Notwithstanding a few explanations...More

We went to this museum and my wife got dressed as a performer, smiling all the way through as two ladies dressed her. We then went up to the second floor to read and see all about it.

The museum is located a short walk from the Contemporary Art Museum and is worth a visit if you have some spare time and are in the area. It's very small but informative.
