Home to the most significant public art collection in the country, National Museum of Western Art specializes in Impressionism. Established in 1959, the museum features a main building designed by widely revered French architect Le Corbusier, and is a work of art in its own right. Immerse yourself in two floors of diverse works, taking special note of the 58-piece Rodin collection, alluded to by the trio of sculptures located outside the museum. Stop by the shop for an extensive collection of some 3,000 books on art and design, or drop into the onsite cafe to grab some refreshments.

  • You can enjoy the ueno park and visit the museum too. Love this space!
  • Least omotenashi museum in Japan. I was excited to see the renovation but very disappointed... Even the light over the pictures for the special exhibition wasn't properly set. The store closes before the museum which closes at 17:30 (lol). The staff, although a large amount of them, were stressed and seemed worn out. This wasn't the beautiful experience we came for.
