What you'll do
Have you ever been to a museum and felt strangely drawn to certain pieces of art? Maybe that's because of hidden stories and secrets behind them. During this tour, you'll get to find them out and look at stunning artworks from a new, deeper perspective. You'll meet me at the entrance of Matsuoka Museum of Art, and then head over to a nearby cafe, where I will fill you in on what to see in the museum over a cup of coffee. While there, ask me any questions and I will gladly answer all of them! And now, time to go inside and browse around the museum for about 75 min. Take your time and enjoy the eclectic collection of valuable artworks and artifacts, ranging from Gandharan sculptures to Victorian paintings to Asian ceramics. Each piece has its own backstories, so I'll help you understand artists' creative intentions, clients' demands, as well as the historical and social context behind them. You can also "TAKE PICTURES" of most of the exhibited items with the flash off. After you've fully appreciated the lovely artworks, join me for a fun lunch at a cafe to exchange thoughts and impressions on them. *Museum admission fee and food and drinks cost are not included in the price.
