  • I had wanted to see Kusama’s work but didn’t realize how much more there was to see at this museum. My son and husband expected to be finished very quickly but we were there for a couple of hours...  more »
  • Very good collection with foreign as well as Japanese sculptors. Great way to discover new sculptors and see works of known artists that are not necessarily seen everywhere. See the web site for more....  more »
  • Love this place very much. Do come.
  • My second visit to the Museum. It's a great experience, walking the grounds and through the forest to see all of the sculptural works. The outside stuff doesn't seem to change, but Special Exhibits inside arrive every couple of months. I've enjoyed both that I've experienced, immensely. Well worth the drive off the beaten path to get there!!
