  • Love this place! It's so amazing to get to go to an outdoor museum and most of the art is stunning. It's a very "Instagram-able" place. There is also a massive Picasso collection. If you have decent weather (or don't mind the rain), I highly recommend a visit. Be sure not to miss the stained glass tower--I promise it's with the stair climb!
  • This museum is in fact a very original mixture of a contemporary art museum, set in a beautiful park and offering some super fun kids' attractions. The contemporary art collection is striking. I would never have thought to see Picasso, Du Buffet and many other great artists in the mountains of Hakone. This place was a real joy to visit, and great fun for both parents and kids. And some of the games were as fun for the kids as for the parents (such as a super cool maze where all people 'lost' in there were running and laughing like kids...).
