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.

One of my favorite museums in Osaka! I highly recommend it for anyone who has an interest in ceramics of Asia.
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.
Excellent display and history of Korean and Japanese ceramics.
Excellent exhibition of Japanese, Chinese and Korean porcelains, celadons and ceramics
The current exhibition is pretty good! Worth a visit!
