Museum Of Oriental Ceramics - Review

This is thought to be one of the finest ceramics collections in the world. Most of the collection focuses on Chinese and Korean artwork, and there are Persian and Vietnamese works too. However, you'll also find a couple of Japanese National Treasures - Celadon vase with Iron Brown Spots, Tenmoku Glaze bowl with Silvery Spots. From each of these countries the artefacts gathered here date back centuries, even millennia, covering the cultures of dynasties through their history. Note the Buncheong Ware collection and the Ataka Collection, which are the highlights of the museum.

Museum Of Oriental Ceramics, Osaka Reviews

  • It’s a neat three-level museum with an extensive collection of Korean, Japanese, and Chinese ceramics. There is also a collection of Persian ceramics, which may be part of the permanent collection. The museum has special light wells that allow natural lighting into the displays. They have many celadon and blue cobalt on white pieces. Many displays have explanations in English. Admission was 500 yen when we visited in 2018. We walked though all he displays in about 2.5 hours.

  • 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.

  • Even if you are the type who says “ who wants to see a bunch of pots”, you will be converted by the exquisite displays, and awesome and thoughtful curation. The natural lighting is amazing!

  • Nice museum. Don't forget to visit there
