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.

From Sendai train station it was a short bus trip to the museum and helpful bus passengers told us what stop to get off at.

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
