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.

we are avid museum goers and our visit here came at the end of a long day and day trip. It was almost an afterthought and we had less than an hour to view the collection. The permanent collection is mostly Western, post-impressionist art including work by artists we know and love, but work unfamiliar to us. The biggest surprise... More

We visited several art museums while in Hiroshima. I was stunned by the number of works by Picasso, Chagall, Latrec and many of the other well know painters.

The museum has some very good pictures from big names, but unfortunately the main exibition has only around 80 pictures. Compared to european art museums this is rather small and with 1000 Yen quite expensive, but if you are into art it might be worth it.

On a day trip to Hiroshima to visit the Peace park and then walk to the castle we came across this museum by chance. It was a perfect place to cool off, see some world face artists' paintings and purchase some interesting arty gifts. What really impressed me were the variety of works from French impressionists. I also particularly like... More

The medium sized museum contains quite a number of good examples of western painters including Manet, Van Gogh and Munch, as well as Japanese painters of the same period. Well worth a couple of hours.
