Why Tokyo Metropolitan Teien Art Museum is special ?

Museum in The Ebisu, Daikanyama area Unlike most museums, the Tokyo Metropolitan Teien Art Museum is itself an art treasure. It calls for a critical apreciation which recognizes the spiritual relationship between exhibit and venue. Surrounded by a green and spacious park, the museum is bleesed with an environment that allows one to enjoy the meeting of nature, architecture and art. It is this meeting which gives the museum its name -- for "teien" means "park" or "garden" in Japanese. The museum staff sincerely hope that in this Art Deco house with its varying collection of artworks you will find a point of contact with beauty -- a place of relief and tranquility.

Ceilings are low and the place has a perfunctory feel. Curation needs creative touch

改装といっても綺麗にしましたって感じで、ロビーの天井が低いのも、展示室が不思議な回廊なのも、変わらない:)

Free and paid exhibits. Have a theme that changes every few weeks. Art seemed to be done by students who were looking for their first break

I enjoyed wandering the dim, cool galleries on a hot summer day! The ancient artifacts and art pieces tell the story of Japanese history. The gift shop was a nice place to get nicer gifts for friends than you might find at most tourist locations.

This is a classy, quiet place with beautiful Japanese style garden and mansion which used to belong to a Japanese aristocrat. It so nice to find peaceful, quiet and classical place like this in the middle of big city. Have nice exhibitions.There is a large pond and the Coy fish here are so used to people, they come close to you when they hear people, expecting to be fed. When I was there, one of the visitor throw a few pieces of bread. A bunch of coy fish rushed into bread pieces, made big waves that resulted the bread pieces ended up on the shore. The next thing I saw was something I could not believe! Those coy fish started to come out from water to pursue the bread pieces!! I have never heard of or have seen fish doing such a thing!! Everyone there was cracking up and larghing real hard!!
