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.

Some quite nice works in the permanent exhibition. There was no temporary exhibition when we went. A decent coffee in the tea room. Overall, this is a good art museum for a regional city.

If you have additional time in Hiroshima visit this gallery - four rooms of French and European art which you might not see in touring exhibitions, pleasant crowd free and with english information. However special exhibition of Japanese artist "Morikazau Kumagai" missing English Curated information.

I was disappointed personally. One of the attractions was shut, and that left four rooms with art to see. It was art from all around the world, and it was nice to see, don't get me wrong. I just expected more.

This museum is a collection of both European and Japanese paintings and features famous artists such as Picasso and Monet. I found myself wandering through it with a smile on my face and the English information is well-written and easy to follow. The museum shop is also well-stocked and perfect for buying gifts to send back to your loved ones.

After the profound and disturbing visit to the Peace Memorial Park & Museum, a head-clearing walk to and visit in this museum was a welcome change of pace. Small, easy to do, four small adjoining galleries in a circular building packed with French and European impressionist, post-impressionist and modern painting, including one of Van Gogh's last paintings. Go; go; go.

I cried when I was there. Great art does that to me. They have an incredible and surprising collection of French impressionists. Surprising because - well, who would have expected it of Hiroshima? The museum itself is beautifully laid out, with gorgeous grounds, a nice cafe that looks out onto them, and spectacular paintings to gaze upon in relative peace.... More
