There are a god selection of both traditional Japanese, and contemporary western paintings here, but for me the main draw is the excellent Rodin sculpture hall. In particular, the centrepiece 'Gates of Hell' is spectacular, and a definite 'must see.' Also worth noting is that...More

I visited this modern museum from the port of Shimizu. The cab ride out was about 30-35 minutes and it cost about $35 USD (note: the cabs take only yen though.) I really liked the Rodin wing and found the other sections a little less...More

They have a nice selection of Rodin's statues. When there is a special exhibit on something you like, that's when you want to go, otherwise, if you are like myself, I am not so into statues, more like paintings, then this museum may not interest...More

Good Auguste Rodin scultural wing with history narrated in other languages at each exhibit. A partnership with a local art academy brought too many sketchers into the exhibit making it difficult not to block someone's view.

An impressive display of Rodin exhibits. Start off with a leisurely walk through the sculpture garden, and come into the spacious museum to admire the Gates of Hell and meet The Thinker. An enjoyable way to spend an afternoon. The nearest rail station (kenritsu-bijyutsujkan-mae) is...More

We came here to see the Rodin exhibit primarily. It was particularly breathtaking due to the architectural design of the space. We've been to the Rodin Museum in Paris and it was delightful to compare the way both museums choose to display his work. The...More

Worth a visit if you live in Tokyo. Only an hour away but I recommend a nights stay in Shizuoka city too. The museum has a great Rodin gallery and a decent collection of impressionist art. Quite impressive considering its somewhat remote location (6 mins...More

For people living close to Shizuoka temporary closure of the museum is quite a blow. During the overhaul some of the exhibition originally for the musuem can be seen in either Sano Art Museum in Mishima and Ninoramu Art Museum in Kakegawa. Last exhibit for...More
