  • Even though I don’t think it’s what you would call a very large museum, it took me three hours to get through and it was amazing. Everyone working there were very polite and helpful.  more »
  • If I go out with the intention of the exhibition was a special exhibition of "Goryeo". Is lucky, others in the gem of the Ataka Collection culled culled displayed alongside 2 national treasures in the small room of the exhibition. Special exhibition exhibited the masterpieces of the Nezu museum and many museums, including the Tokyo National Museum of Koryo celadon 243 points, but the majority is configured in the Ataka Collection, once again surprised by the mass of the Ataka Collection masterpiece collection. Even five hours enough time not enough fulfillment Buri was. Each pottery's first Director, Itoh ikutaro worked at the forefront of Eiichi Ataka Collection "beautiful Hound' read together, and pick up background to understand, the more I enjoy the collection.

  • Wonderful museum if you like ceramics even if you are not expert .these are historical pieces and national treasures. The Korean céladons are exceptional. A Must see in OSAKA.
  • I visited when there was special exhibition. I had one day osaka pass so i had discounted admission which was 1,000yen (reg: 1,200) It was worth it as the collection was good. Employees were very friendly. Felt sad as they had good collections from China and Korea. Recommend for those who are interestes in ceramics.
