we went to the permanent gallery only. they offer student discount. but the gallery is so small with only few exhibits. not worthy for a entry fee at all. Though building is quite spectacular.

Lovely museum, and not too far of a walk from the Chiba Urban Monorail station. The permanent collection area is a tad small, but the special exhibition took up several floors and was very fun to explore. There was a lot more English on the signs than some other museums I've visited in Japan, and the special exhibition provided multilingual titles and descriptions via a QR code. The building itself used to be a bank that was built in the 1920s. The front room/gallery space still has the original look with tall ceilings and columns. The first floor also has a small cafe and a museum shop. In addition to the main galleries, the museum also has a small children's and art book library you can peruse, a room to host classes and activities for kids, a large workshop, and a few smaller studio spaces that can be rented for personal use. One of the upper floors consisted of a lecture hall and citizens' galleries, though they were closed when I visited.

Originally, the museum building was an old bank from 1920s. They moved the bank building (actually dragged) by Hiki-Ie method (pulling a whole house), then restored in the modern concrete building. Their collection includes Ukiyoe (woodblock prints)like Hiroshige, Hokusai and some modern art Yayoi Kusama as well.
