Ghibli Museum is the most popular Japanese animation studio. The design of the museum is extremely unusual, as is the collection itself that is on display. The museum building is partially covered with a thick layer of greenery, and an incredible robot, 16 meters high, a caricature from Japanese film, rises from the park.
It is very important to keep in mind that tickets for all visitors who are not from Japan are sold on the first day of the month for the next 3 months and sell out very quickly. Here you can watch short animated films and you should not miss the Three Hawks reading room.
The Ghibli Museum seems like an immersed world, not like another classic museum. From the Ghibli artist’s workshop to the original sketches, the museum uses all sorts of methods to revive Miyazaki’s vision. What should also be kept in mind is that photos are forbidden, so many of our visitors will be denied the opportunity to transfer this experience to some of the social networks. Even the tickets are made from original 35mm film prints.
Exploring the museum is an experience in itself, with surprises like a giant Tortor or a stuffed Cat bus around every corner. When it comes to the permanent collection, it consists of works of art by Ghibli as well as creative presentations. Although the museum is mostly visited by big fans of Ghibli and his work, it is equally interesting to older and younger generations. You don't have to watch the Ghibli Studio movie before to appreciate this museum. Inside the museum there is a cafe bar that you will surely enjoy.
