Came here using Osaka Amazing Pass. It was an absolutely waste of time as it only allows you a free entrance to a very small exhibition on the 2nd floor which can be finish within 20 mins. It doesn't worth the effort of travelling here...More

Surrounded by a park, zoo, temple and burial grounds, it is easy to spend the better part of a day exploring this part of Osaka. When I was there, there was a special exhibit on carved wooden statues from the Heien and Kamakura periods. It...More

I went to the museum for the exhibition of Detroit Museum. The exhibition was fantastic, but there are many visitors despite a bad weather. The museum itself is not bad. However, it needs maybe a renovation.

We visited this museum as part of having free entry with our Grutto passes. The works in display were varied - ceramics, calligraphy, oriental images, paintings, and statues - most of which was Japanese. The painting hall was European and was the poorest hall there....More

I had read one of the other reviews and went straight for the underground part. There were two separate exhibitions going on with three people each on the counters to mind them. None of them could tell me what they were about, one mumbled “European”....More

Fascinating to see history presented via scrolls. Labels in English very useful. For me the outstanding feature was the grand marble entrance hall and light fitting. Worth a look. The entrance fee 1300 I thought was a bit steep.

I went here today, April 14, 2016 and payed 1,300 yen for the special exhibit, which was a complete waste of my time. It was only Japanese calligraphy, with no signs in English...I walked around the whole museum in under 5 minutes and came back...More

Sadly despite the trek to the Museum, it was only the underground gallery that was open. (Reopens 11 April) As nice as Japanese calligraphy is, 4 rooms is too much of the same thing with no explanations.
