For the price, not really worth it unless they have a special exhibit that interests you. The permanent collection is tiny and can be seen in under an hour (including watching the not too interesting video displays). The staff is prickly at best, and the out door sculptures (the best part of the museum) can be seen for free... but... More

Having seen the Peace Park, we decided to visit the Museum of Art. It was cold and damp so something cultural indoors seemed like a good idea. The museum was quiet and uncrowded. Inside, there are 4 rooms. Wow! We have visited the Musee D'Orsay several times in Paris and enjoyed the Impressionist paintings. What a surprise to see pieces... More

I saw the exhibition by Anno and it was very well curated. There are some nice standard pieces. The cafe was also pretty comfortable and the landscaping was pleasing.

On a wet weekday afternoon, this was the perfect place to visit. The permanent collection has a surprising array of masters on display: Picasso, Monet, Toulouse- latreck, Degas, van Gough... Well worth a wander.

The museum has a marvellous collection of French impressionists, but for me the Special Exhibition of Anno was breath taking. This contemporary illustrator blends optical illusions, humour and thought provoking illustrations that delight the soul.

The Prefectural Art Museum is a gem, and well worth the time and the 1,200 ¥ admission price. The building and grounds are pretty, and kudos to the museum for using soft carpet in the walking areas, a museum rarity, in my experience. There's an interesting collection of both French 19th and 20th Century painting and sculpture, as well as... More

If you are looking for an escape from the heat and humidity, stop in here for a couple of hours and enjoy wonderful paintings and other art. Some of the Picasso's were absolutely incredible, from just before his cubism period shows his true talent as a painter. Other artists works, from Van Gough, Monet, Cezanne, and Boudin were also prominently... More
