Wonderful museum near monkey park
Feb 2020 • Couples
It's definitely worth visit. Museum building is beautiful, exposition is exquisite. Really enjoyed. Kids could eat pizza and pasta in glass terrace cafe, which is close to museum, so I could fully enjoy.

Interesting Building
Jan 2019 • Couples
Found this museum by accident whilst waiting for the bus to leave after visiting the snow monkey park. I found the architecture of the building to be quite beautiful, the exterior concrete walls with glass pieces scattered around, and the roof when looked at from inside is also quite interesting. There is a small display of ancient glass bottles/vases, and at the time of our visit there was an exhibition of photos of snow monkeys, and another exhibition of wildlife photography. Free entry too so doesn't hurt to take look especially if you have along wait for the bus !

Beautiful building!
Feb 2019 • Couples
This museum was probably built as part of the festivities of the '98 Winter Games, and has since see better days. That said, its not run down or anything, just a little dated. The exhibits were limited to photographs of the nearby Snow Monkey Park attraction and one room featuring Roman Glass artefacts. It seems to usually play second fiddle to the Snow Monkey Park, where visitors might pop in to get out of the cold. Still, its architecture is admirable!

Meh Museum, but luggage storage
Feb 2018 • Friends
This museum was not very large, it didn't have a lot to really go around and see, but they let us store our luggage there while we saw the snow monkey park. So, there's a plus!

Worth a stop

A surprising find on the side of the road. We are not museum junkies but were tired and needed a break so we stopped. This offers one of the most amazing hands on exhibit you would ever expect. It is a temporary exhibit so take advantage of this while it is still there.

Lost in translation - a museum celebrating beauty
Mar 2017 • Couples
We had a small amount of time to kill waiting for the bus after walking up to see the snow monkeys. Our guide told us this very contemporary looking building was a Roman Museum..but the Roma-n is nothing to do with Roman art...why would it in this location. It is everything to do with the Japanese aesthetic. We saw two exhibitions, one by a famous Japanese photographer for National Geographic and the other a glass exhibition of angels. The photos were mind blowing..and beautifully presented. The glass exhibit was breathtaking. The gallery room is itself one of the most impressive spaces I have seen to exhibit art...and the twelve iconic spherical glass cases containing the delicate glass angels were excellent. The room was pretty much black with lighting just on the individual exhibits. While we went in to see what was never likely to be there...we came out quite exhilarated by the unexpected serendipity of finding something so great.

Really!!??

There are no Roman ruins. Some plaster replicas of roman statues and a single attentive staff member who seems rather embarrassed by the whole setup. Only bother with this if you have a long wait for your bus back to Nagano or are trying to escape the cold, and then only if the restaurant next door is closed.
