館内での展示物撮影には事前説明もありませんでしたが、一部不可と書いてある展示物以外は撮影可とあったので、ムービーを撮ったところ、ムービーはご遠慮下さいと強いトーンで言われました。じゃあ事前にムービー不可と書いとけば？最近は動画撮影可の美術館もおおいですよ？そんなに大事なら入館時にきちんと案内したらいいのに。他の係員の方も全体的に注意することに生きがいを感じてらっしゃるのかな？と思わせる態度で、早く... more »There was no prior explanation for the exhibition shooting in the building, but there was a fact that it was possible to shoot except for the exhibit that some of it was not possible, so when I took a movie, I was told in a strong tone that I would refrain from the movie. Then, if you write that the movie is not possible in advance? Recently, there are many museums where you can shoot videos, too? If it's so important, I wish I could show you around properly when you enter the museum. Do other staff feel worth living to be aware of overall? I wanted to go home early with an attitude that made me think. It is amazing to be able to align the people who have bad attitude so far! I didn't have much opportunity to go to contemporary art, but it was difficult and the threshold was high, and I got the image of a high-flying car, so I thought it would be good.
I never actually paid to see any exhibits while living here. The park outside is a good place to park your bike (or get a rental) and there are a few interactive displays for the kids. One day a week there was a free arty play group in the morning for young kids. Next to the gallery is a restored traditional building that depicts a garden tea room. Good for a photo. Read other reviews if you want to explore the novelty of paying for the experience of a walking in a plastic roofed "swimming pool".
Definitely check this place out. Cool strcuture and fascinating spots where you can take pictures. I'll leave it as that but see it for yourself. I didn't pay for the ticket since the queue was extremely long but still enjoyed my 15/20 min here walking around in the free zone.
