Absolutely worth a few hours of your time. When seeking out beauty, there are so many choices in Hiroshima. This museum is a great choice, and is on the hop-and-stop route.

Unfortunately most of the regular exhibition was closed due to preparations for a new show. We still paid full price only to see a quarter of the museum. Disappointing.

Very small museum and not very interesting. There were a few pices that were worth the entrance fee , but it was too big of a building for such a meager collection.

The art museum was very good, but do buy a joint ticket to see the Shukkeien garden which is accessed via the museum and is stunning. Very good value, it is an oasis of peace in the middle of this very busy city.

Visited the museum as this was the entrance to Shukkeien Garden. There was display of Mazda sport cars at lobby area during the period. One impressionist car was sculptured in timber. Set ticket available for visiting both museum exhibits and Shukkeien Garden. Access: take streetcar to Hatchobori, get a transit ticket pass as you pay for the ride, walk to... More

Hiroshima Prefectural Art Museum opens onto the magnificent Shukkeien Garden and together make a delightful morning or afternoon. I visited the gardens first arriving at 0900h which is when they open and following a most enjoyable walk of 2 hours headed to the museum. First order though was a coffee in their cute little cafe on the 3rd floor that... More

Accidentally got off here instead of the Peace Memorial Museum but it was still beautiful and the gardens were stunning. It costs a small fee to visit the gardens and it was so worth it. In Spring there are cherry blossoms and everything is luscious and green, it was an idyllic scene. We also saw traditional wedding photos being taken... More

Take time to visit this museum and be sure to get a ticket to spend time in the park after. There were many photographers in the park with couple in wedding Kimono's take pictures. It was fun to watch and the park is amazing!

I visited the museum to get some idea about japanese artists. Most of the paintings are newer works from 1900 to 2000. They had a few ones that really stunned me, but most of the paintings didn´t "talk" to me. But since it is art everybody has to decide on his or her own. In the last exibition room there... More

We bought a combination ticket for which allowed us into the general museum galleries and the adjacent Shukkein gardens. (Note: This did not get us into the special exhibition galleries) The museum was OK, but kinda lacking in substance. We had come to specifically see two pictures … the Salvador Dali “Dreams of Venus” which was magnificent and the Holocaust... More
