We had lunch in the Tea Room at the Hiroshima Museum of Art. Limited options, but speedily served, nice coffee and good service. The gallery has an excellent permanent exhibition too!!!

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

Its not a must visit place for sure. Only visit if you have enough time to spare. There are many other better places to cover in Hiroshima.

The three main public museums were having 1 large art sharing this summer. Most people were at the Van Gogh so I had the Monets and Renoirs all to myself. Found the best viewing distance for all the paintings and I never knew what a luxury that is. They also had an exhibit of Isamu Noguchi's work. I do like... More

At the time of my visit there was a temporary exhibition of Japanese work and the permanent collection of almost entirely French paintings. The combination of cultures works really well, is stimulating and allows you the opportunity to really compare and contrast different styles and heritage. The gallery itself is very modernist in style (I could move in), floor to... More

The actual space of the museum is what makes it worth a look. It combines a sense of Japanese zen/minimalism with some more European aspects very successfully. The art is OK, a few pictures from some extremely famous artists & then some more mediocre pieces. However the experience is the perfect size: I didn't feel overwhelmed walking around, and if...
