  • Holidays are crowded with people who buy tickets. If you buy it in advance, admission is smooth!

  • There was no prior explanation for the exhibition shooting in the building, but there was a fact that it was possible to shoot except for the exhibit that some of it was not possible, so when I took a movie, I was told in a strong tone that I would refrain from the movie. Then, if you write that the movie is not possible in advance? Recently, there are many museums where you can shoot videos, too? If it's so important, I wish I could show you around properly when you enter the museum. Do other staff feel worth living to be aware of overall? I wanted to go home early with an attitude that made me think. It is amazing to be able to align the people who have bad attitude so far! I didn't have much opportunity to go to contemporary art, but it was difficult and the threshold was high, and I got the image of a high-flying car, so I thought it would be good.

  • I never actually paid to see any exhibits while living here. The park outside is a good place to park your bike (or get a rental) and there are a few interactive displays for the kids. One day a week there was a free arty play group in the morning for young kids. Next to the gallery is a restored traditional building that depicts a garden tea room. Good for a photo. Read other reviews if you want to explore the novelty of paying for the experience of a walking in a plastic roofed "swimming pool".
  • Definitely check this place out. Cool strcuture and fascinating spots where you can take pictures. I'll leave it as that but see it for yourself. I didn't pay for the ticket since the queue was extremely long but still enjoyed my 15/20 min here walking around in the free zone.
