This was one of the stops on the sightseeing bus tour. What a treasure it was! There is a permanent display of French impressionists with both paintings and sculptures by Picasso, Matisse, Rodin, Van Gogh and Cezanne to name but a few. It's not a house gallery, but well worth the visit for art lovers. There is also a lovely... More

The Hiroshima Museum of Art is located just across from the Rihga Hotel in the heart of the city - and what a surprise it is. This smallish art gallery / museum has some amazing works by Picasso, Van Gogh, Monet and Boudin amongst others. Some of these works are probably priceless! I have no idea where they got these...

It's a chilling story of the heart wrenching atomic bomb which was Hiroshimas horror story. The care and detailing which has gone into the preservation of the memory deserves a salute ! One must try folding a paper crane there and there are people ready to help you. Guided tours for the adjoining peace park are available .

When we went, the museum had a very nice collection of classical pieces on exhibit - Picasso, Rodin, Monet, etc. the permanent exhibit was nice and light and worth a look - I particularly liked the Japanese art section. We spent about 2-3 hours, including a very decent coffee next to the souvenir shop

This is well worth a quick scoot around. There are some important pieces in here, and the design of museum allows you to take them all in easily within an hour. Do this rather than go inside the castle.
