This is a great building designed by Tadao Ando. Great accessibility for wheel chairs and prams with the ramps around the building externally. Worth a visit if you are in the area.

Beautifully located. Ando (the architect) is Japan's best and most brilliant. The art inside is the bonus. They usually have excellent special exhibitions. I have been three times now and never been disappointed. Don't catch a taxi there. Just check out the local JRail. It...More

The art museum itself is a nice building to explore. Lots of stairs leading to different view points of the harbour; austere concrete structure. The permanent collection consisted of many wood-cut prints depicting fantastical fables of the west. There was a collection of classical and...More

The architecture of this gallery, by reknowned architect Tadao Ando, is an artwork in itself and for many will be a sufficient drawcard alone. The gallery includes a small but substantial and informative exhibition on Ando, concentrating principally on nearby works. Make sure you walk...More

on the riverside and around the museum are a number of fantastic scultures to visit in free access without any entrance fee - don't miss the gigantic steel girl on the riverfront. the whole building is worth a visit even without the expositions.
