AllMusic Review by

Museum of Fruit was inspired by Itsuko Hasegawa's fruit museum, a group of three buildings near Mount Fuji that resemble large globular greenhouses. Unlike the ethno-ambience of previous releases, Toop's music here is similar in structure and sound to Japanese traditional music. In keeping with his career though, Toop places more emphasis on the means of recording than the results, even including "bioelectric recordings of fruit" by Michael Prime.
