The building of the Museum is unique and makes one feel compfortable (main colour is white). The exhibits are contemporary Japanese Arts. My aim is to see the Aomori-Ken (Dog). There is a prototype made by plastic (looks so bright and shiny like made by ceramic) inside the Museum but no photo there. If you carry a heavy bag (ie... More

I greatly enjoyed my visit to the Aomori Museum of Art in January 2014. The building's design is very interesting -- simultaneously futuristic and of the earth (in a cave like way). As for the art, I really liked the temporary exhibit of Yokio Futagawa's photography of Japanese houses and villages circa 1950. I marveled at the photos' rich texture,... More

I went in August 2013, and got a ticket for both the temporary and permanent exhibitions. The ticket is a bit on the pricey side, costing upwards of ¥1000 for the two exhibitions (although you can purchase the tickets individually). Other than basic information about the pieces (name, title, materials), the placards for the art is all in Japanese. So,... More

Going there i really didn't know what to expect. From the outside it looked very modern like design and has a great amount of things to see in there. Unfortunately their is no English pamphlets or audio guide, but that didn't deter me from enjoying the museum. You are allowed to take pictures in certain sections and in other you... More

I have never been to a Art museum in my life, not even in my own country. But having heard so much about Nara Yohitomo's Hula Hula Garden, I decided to make a visit there. Simple, spacious and white just about all describe the outer appearance of this museum. But it is what inside that will enthrall your senses. The... More
