This museum was at the bottom of my list due to the negative reviews here. But since I had free time, went to the museum to make use of the 'Osaka Amazing Pass'. There are four floors. Taking photographs are prohibited on 2nd & 3rd floor. The 4th floor is where the classes are held and various displays. There is also a TV showing Japanese and English documentary on the museum.
My mother didn't really care much about the paintings and just whizz through the 2nd & 3rd floor. But when she watched the documentary, she realised how amazing this method of painting was & went through the gallery AGAIN to really appreciate the art.
So my advice would be to straight go to the 4th floor and take your time to watch the documentary. Once you know how it was made, you will really enjoy the gallery and their amazing colours & precision.
