Nara National Museum, Nara Reviews

  • Excellent highly recommend , have a look bit.

  • 1972(昭和47)年 吉村順三氏の設計により新館がオープン。 正倉院をイメージした外観になっている。 1997(平成7)年 同吉村氏の設計により東新館のオープン。 これにより今までの「新館」は「西新館」と呼ばれるようになる。 入口は東西新館の中央になり、本館との地下での通路も回廊式になる。 正倉院展などは現在、こちらの新館で。

  • 2018年6月訪問。今回は「春日大社のすべて」という企画展をやっていました。仏像館(旧館)がまた素晴らしいです。次は正倉院展に来たいと思っています。

  • 快慶 展 土曜日に行って来ました。 混雑していませんでした。 仏像館と合わせて見てきました。 沢山の仏様がいらっしゃいます。 会場はエアコンが効いていて寒かったです。

  • 正倉院展で久しぶりに訪問しましたが、平日のためか小学生の団体で賑わっていました😅 仏像のある旧館は風情のある建物が良かったのに、内装が一新されてしまいました。
