This is a relatively new fine art museum that opened its door in 2005, but its history goes back to 1965 when Nagasaki Prefecture opened the Nagasaki Prefectural Museum. Located near the Dejima Stop of the municipal tramway, the prominent museum building complex is easy to spot. It has five rooms for their permanent collection and another for a special... More

It's 400 yen to get into the permanent exhibit which is very small. We spent 30 minutes and saw everything. They have two Picassos. It wasn't really worth it. The public exhibit is free and was a collection of calligraphy. Since we can't read Japanese, we couldn't appreciate this section. The Temporary exhibit is an additional 1400 yen. We didn't... More

Beside the changing exhibitions, it is worth to visit this Museum because of the architecture and the Museum shop.

Worth a visit, beautiful building by Kengo Kuma with spacious rooms for the art and a nice museumshop. Visit the museum for the architecture; art is okay.

Though being designed by Kengo Kuma, the museum itself is not excellent. The building has some nice ideas and features but overall it is not an architectural masterpiece. The exhibition is good for Japanese standards. If it is rainy and you have some time to spend, maybe it is worth a visit.

We were very much fascinated by the beautiful building and its interior designs but not so by the art collections and exhibitions. It is located near the harbour and there is a nice cafeteria inside. We can enjoy a fantastic view from the rooftop.

I visited the Art Museum with my six-year-old daughter and the variety on offer kept her attention for most of the visit. We had to pay extra for the temporary exhibit - but that was our highlight - beautiful Japanese paintings, kimonos and other items by Kataoka Tsurutaro. The permanent exhibition was also good, but we walked through much faster.... More

I enjoyed my short visit while my wife went shopping. A very pleasant break in a nice area of the city. English spoken. There is a gift shop and a small cafeteria. The exhibit was small, but that is good if you find that many art museums have too much to mentally digest. Plus it being small you won't have... More

I was visiting friends and had a free afternoon to walk around. The NPAM is a real gem. Not only was it visually splendid and interesting in terms of architectural thoughtfulness and presence in its harbour side location, it was filled with wonder. The visiting exhibition of huge bronzes by Japanese artist was quite stunning and cleverly curated for the... More

Two glass buildings were connected by foot bridge. First floor of main building had a souvenir shop and free admission to exhibition hall. Exhibits on next building required admission fee. A rest place for travelers who needed air conditioning in hot summer and use of bathroom. Visit the roof top to take good pictures of the habour. (In fact, the... More
