Otsuka Museum of Art Reviews
70代の母の希望、入場料が3,240円と高いので1日楽しむつもりで行ってきました。世界26カ国190余の美術館から選定された名画が1000点以上展示されています。時間が足りないくらい見応えがあります。海外で見た絵画がここで見られたり、予習として見たりと楽しめます。また海外に行くのが難しいという人にも良いと思います。TV番組で海外の名画が出ると「この絵見た」という現象が増えました。現地で見たのかと思... more »My mother's hope, admission fee is 3,240 yen and high, so I went there with the intention of enjoying the day. More than 1,000 masterpieces selected from more than 190 museums in 26 countries are on display. There is a sense of worth while. You can see the paintings you have seen overseas here, and you can enjoy them as a preparation. I also think that it is good for the person that it is difficult to go abroad. When a tv program showed a famous picture from overseas, the phenomenon of "I saw this picture" increased. I thought i saw it there, but I saw it in Tokushima Prefecture. I'm still enjoying it for 3,240 yen.
ランチを含めて4時間半ほど滞在しました。 入口からエスカレーターで上った所が地下3階というのはあの地形ならではだと、実際行ってみるとよく分かります。日曜日だったので賑わってはいましたが、何しろ広いので混雑には至りませんでした。 偽物と言ってしまえばそれまでですが、撮影も触るのも自由という逆の魅力があります。床の矢印で順路は分かりやすいし、随所に椅子やトイレがあるので、時間をかけてじっくり鑑賞するこ... more »I stayed for about four and a half hours, including lunch. If that is the terrain that the place which went up by the escalator from the entrance is that the underground third floor, it understands well when actually going. It was crowded because it was Sunday, but it was not crowded because it was large anyway. If it is said that it is a fake, it is until then, but there is the opposite charm of freedom to take a picture and to touch it. The arrow on the floor makes it easy to understand the route, and there are chairs and toilets everywhere, so you can take the time to appreciate it. I went from Tokushima Airport by bus. It is usual in the provinces that the tire is sparse. If you want to make the most of your time, i think it's a good idea to take a tour.
Though these are reproductions, nonetheless a very comprehensive collection of some of the most well known western master pieces spanning from Roman (Pompeii) till modern (Munch, Klimt, Picasso) times. An excellent opportunity to see beautiful art at (larger than) life size, up close with no crowds. The layout and display are well planned and definitely enhancing the experience. There are good explanations, though often only in Japanese. A two hours tour led by an experienced guide is free, but again only in Japanese. Spending nearly a whole day can be a bit heavy. But the museum restaurant was quite good quality and not expensive.
Great building with nice view but every artworks there are not original. I might be wrong, but paintings are printed and baked on tiles or something..
