Ueno is home to a number of world-class museums within easy walking distance of each other. The National Museum of Western Art complements its permanent exhibition of works by Van Gogh, Renoir, Picasso and Pollock with rolling exhibitions. If you prefer your art more contemporary, head to The Ueno Royal Museum. For traditional Japanese works of art, the Tokyo National Museum houses a wide range of oriental artworks and antiquities including ukiyo-e woodblock prints, ceramics and swords. The National Museum of Nature and Science showcases a wide range of exhibits from the natural world with a particular focus on dinosaurs.
