平日なのに・・何と午前10時で入ったら、肝心の第一会場90分待ち、年寄りは来るな・・と、言う事ですか。 外国の方々子連れで、あちこちスマホでパチパチ・・写真を。 係りの方は知らん顔、1600円払って、第2会場を見終わって・・・ギブアップ 行くんじゃなかった・・・。 テレビの「美の壺」で我慢するんだった・・後悔 more »Even weekdays, and what once in 10:00, venue of 90-minute wait, come the old--, say?. Foreign residents with children in the here and Smartphone with crackling, and photos. Did not I would recommend paying the indifference, 1,600 yen, 2, after I gave up going.... Was going to put up with the mark of beauty on the TV-and no regrets
일본이라는 문화 강대국(?)의 국립 박물관이라 여행전부터 큰 기대했었는데 별로입니다. 부디 시간과 체력을 아끼시길 바랍니다. more »Japan called cultural powers (?) The National Museum had great expectations from the trip. Please save the time and stamina.
The museum has a lot of historical artifacts, however they were not displayed in order of time nor any story was presented for the sequence of rooms. Recommend to get the audio guide as it provides good info which you may not get just simply by looking at the artifacts. For special museum you need 4 hours minimum, so plan your day! Finally, at the end of the special exhibitions, you can make your own post card with some stamp! It's just before the museum shop!
Extremely interesting historical and archaeological museum of civilizations in East Asia. There are three parts - Japan's Archaeological Museum, Japan's Historic Museum and a History Museum of several Asian Civilizations - China, Korea, and so on. We visited the museum during the golden week, it was free and there was no queue. It is good to spend at least 3 hours for the entire museum.
