Nara National Museum, Nara Reviews

  • Excellent highly recommend , have a look bit.

  • 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。

  • 恵心僧都源信の特別展、良かったです。やはりどちらの国立博物館も、プライドに掛けて、みたいな気迫を感じさせます。

  • 企画展を観たのだけれど、丁寧な説明および潤沢な資料の展示があり、分かりやすかった。
