A late project by I M Pei, really stunning architecture organically fitting the landscape. Not particularly easy to reach, but definitely worth the effort.

Fabulous setting in nature. The tunnel to the museum is awesome. The permanent collection is amazing. There are several pieces from Ghandara. The Persian section is excellent. The architecture by I.M. Pei alone is worth the visit. The Egyptian section is small but pieces are...More

Hi Ann Miho museum is really easy to get to by public transportation: JR train to Ishiyama and then Teisan bus line straight to Miho. If you still need a privet driver - any taxi driver will love to help you.
