    Apple Store on steroids. Or the child of apple store and MoMa. Even is you don't come for the exhibit, the space alone is worth a visit. Have. Latte and just chill. Don't miss the gift shop.

    There is an amazing Tadao Ando exhibition running until December 18. A bit pricy (1500 Y) but very thorough, save a couple of hours for it.There's even a full scale replica of the church of light!

    Saw the issey miyake and Renoir exhibits - they were both wonderful. Renoir was really crowded and difficult to get a good view. Highly recommend the issey for anyone interested in Japanese design!!

    We saw the Issey Miyake exhibition. It was superbly curated. The way this show is imaginatively curated by the NACT really helps to convey the conceptual and ethical roots of Mikyake's oeuvre

    One of Japan's most dexterous and vast cultural spaces, the museum doesn't stand still: rather than housing a permanent collection, it instead hosts a changing schedule of ambitious exhibits.

    Beautiful architecture, worth a visit just for that. Have a coffee and sit on the deck.

    The Kusama exhibition was excellent. Be prepared to drop some Yen at the gift shop. The building itself is beautiful, spacious and a great place to spend a rainy day in Tokyo.

    The National Art Center, Tokyo, designed by famed architect, Kisho Kurokawa, is one of Japan’s only “empty museums”, with no permanent collection or display, just temporary sponsored exhibitions.

    Amazing space & great exhibitions that are always changing. Popular exhibits get really crowded so pick days and time wisely. The museum shop is also worth checking out.

    You can buy tickets online (if English-speaking, use the Google Chrome translate version of the website). Yayoi Kusama exhibit was stunning!

    Nice contemporary building with local modern art exhibition, the whole Roppongi area is definitely worth a visit if you are visiting Tokyo.

    Great architecture, but be warned if you go here on a hot day they keep the AC to a minimum

    The actual galleries were ok--pretty small collection. No descriptions of art in English like other museums. But the store was fun! Great for souvenirs.

    Lots of free exhibits and some great paid stuff. No permanent collection, so the contents are always changing.

    2005. 45,000 m2. Energy-saving design. Symbiotic relationship with the surrounding areas.

    It’s not really a museum, more like art oriented exhibition center. Saw two exhibitions - Tadao Ando Great) and Shinkai Makoto (mediocre). Overpriced and overcrowded, as usual in Tokyo

    Hit up the Yayoi Kusama gift shop first, otherwise it's a 45 minute wait just to check out.
