It’s a small, yet beautifully designed museum by Tadao Ando. The exhibits are very creative and mind boggling. When we visited there was an exhibit on athletes and the installations were amazing, interactive and spirit-elevating!

A place with a special architecture hosting cute exhibitions. The theme of this time is the athletes. Media and touch on stuff in an interesting amount and combination.

I visited the 'Athlete' exhibition at the museum and was completely blown away. First things first, I'm an athlete, not by profession, but I've always been into sport and currently run marathons, so this exhibition was always going to be a hit with me as...More

Nice architecture by Tadao Ando, but the museum isn't actually that big, it really only does a single exhibit at a time with no available archive or permanent collection. As a result, your enjoyment will really depend on the show that's on when you visit......More

The location is easy to get, the building is beautiful. There is no permanent collection, but the Ando architecture of the building itself is worth a visit.

There was a Frank Gehry retrospective when I was there and the museum displayed the various building models, thought process and works of Gehry beautifully. Very interesting architecture with the majority of the museum underground. Very close to Roppongi Hills and Tokyo Midtown area.

Tadao Ando design hence great use of concrete and light. Always interesting well curated exhibitions. Next door to a great open space behind Tokyo Midtown, with interesting shops and food outlets. Busy on week ends with local families.

Great design by Ando. It's a nice sight to visit while in Tokyo. Has a nice garden surrounding that is really relaxing in many ways.

Akasaka / Roppongi
Not so long ago the Akasaka and Roppongi areas were
famous for their nightlife, high-class restaurants,
bars and clubs. More recently, with the opening of
Roppongi Hills, Tokyo Midtown and Akasaka Sacas, the
area has declared itself as the most fashionable spot
to be seen. The area also hosts the National Art
Center and the Mori Art Museum and lots of trendy art
galleries.
