This is the second time in just over a year I have been to this museum, based on their special exhibits - it's worth checking out the upcoming attractions if you know you will be in the area.

The Miyagi Museum in Sendai currently presents an impressive exhibition Van Gogh in Paris. It gives a good insight of the development of the world famous artist in Paris, working with famous impressionist artists. Must see
