Lalique Museum, Hakone4.0
Surronded by the nature of Hakone, this museum exhibits lifelong works of René Lalique, a renowned French jewler and a glass designer. The collection of more than 1500 of Lalique pieces including over 200 precious jewelries are owned by the museum. A cafe and restaurant, a museum shop, and a gift shop are available. An original Orient Express wagon, of which the interior glass panels were designed by Lalique, is also on display and you can enjoy a luxurious teatime inside this beautiful salon car(on-site reservation required).

The people at the front sold us an unnecessary expensive ticket while not informing us about a special sale (Odakyu free pass) for all of the museums of the area. Even after we let them know, we want to visit all the museums in the surrounding and have the free pass available.
Either they were sleeping or they were not interested in selling another companies product.
Museum itself is mediocre (might be because I am European that the exhibition is quite underwhelming).
Not a great experience...

I'm not so interested in the main part of the museum, but Le Train was a divine experience. I love Murder on the Orient Express. And this just set my bibliophile hear ablaze.

The varied displays are great. I've been here several times and always enjoy it. The cafe is also really good.

For art, art decor, artist, and designers who love glass design, this is an hidden gem in Hakone. With an extensive collection of lalique objects from the less well known jewellery collections to their interior designed custom made objects to home items such as Vase and lamps. Unfortunately like most Japanese museums they are geared towards Japanese visitors, but you can still marvelled at the creation. Take home the book, as a reference, you won't regret it.
