Colourful visual spectacle from the permanent "Glass Art Garden" exhibition on the top floor by Dale Chihuly (American Glass Sculpture). Works are dotted around on the 6th floor. Cost of entry is Y200 for adults / Y170 for kids. The building itself is architecturally stunning, and has a cafe/small gift shop on the 1st floor. Many of the other floors are temporary exhibits or function rooms, and they also house a small public library. The museum was voted by TripAdvisor commentary/word of mouth count as top to visit in 2019 (came 13th). Worth a short visit!

Mori Shusui Museum of Art showcases works of fine art collected by Lead Chemical Co., Ltd. "Shusui" means clear autumn water, which represents the clean, well-honed nature of the Japanese sword. This name was selected because the museum has one of the greatest Japanese sword collections in the nation, and the museum`s logo symbolizes its signature "sword." Lead Chemical Co., Ltd houses many Japanese swords and other nationally important cultural properties and art treasures such as paintings, Japanese and Chinese pottery, and calligraphy, including masterpieces of representative painters of Japanese modern art history such as Taikan Yokoyama and Gyokudo Kawai. Historically, Toyama prefecture was an important center of sword production, and home to famous sword smiths such as Norishige and Gou no Yoshihiro. The Uda Ha School of Sword Making actively produced swords during the Muromachi period. This museum`s collection of swords is designed to captivate your eyes and minds.
