Fodor's Review

After extensive renovations, this museum's new Collections Hall is scheduled to be unveiled in 2014. This Meiji-era brick structure holds an extensive array of sculptures, textiles, ceramics, and metalwork. It is worth checking on the temporary exhibitions, which can bring some real treasures. The museum is on the corner of Shichijo-dori and Higashi-oji-dori, across from Sanjusangen-do and Chishaku-in. From Kyoto Station take Bus 206 or 208 to the Sanjusangen-do-mae stop.
