  • Excellent and informative tour of a wonderful museum. We were surprised to have our own guide for the three of us, a volunteer named Will. He was so knowledgeable and also wove in personal stories...

  • Loving this new location and the building itself is a work of art. Some of my favorite artists are currently on display including Yayoi Kusama's infinity room. Great museum shop packed with perfect gifting items.
  • Very interesting place. One can learn a lot about the Japanese immigration to America.
