The museum is modern with a good collection of art by Yoshitomo Nara, and huge backdrops of the ballet Aleko by Chagall. Aomori-ken (Aomori Dog) is situated outside the museum building. Visitors can see it from inside the museum through the observation window, or take a path to see it up close. There is no fee to take the path so visitors can just come and see Aomori-ken if they wish to save a few bucks. There is also a nice coffee shop inside the museum. If coming from Aomori station, take the bus at bay no.6. Do check the bus schedule as the buses are hourly. I happened to miss the bus by a minute and ended up taking a cab (some 1,300 - 1,500 yen).

Sounds like the success of your visit depends on what is currently being exhibited. The first impression you get from the outside of the building is an impressive one. A grand building set on a hillside. Even inside there are immense showing rooms. The Chagall exhibit is stunning. However, it was downhill from there. Most of the other exhibit were of photographs and most of the descriptions were in Japanese. Kind of surprising given that so many tourists come here. Honestly, for the price of the bus ticket (you can't use JR pass) and the entrance fee, it was not money well spent.

I visited this place to see the architecture! I purposely went in Febraury to see the building against snow. I wasn't disappointed! It also has a quite impressive collection especially of Yoshitomo Nara.

Nice museum. A bit out of the way, but there is a tourist bus from the train station and/or the tourist center which will take you right to it.

Because of the lack of snow, ski resorts were slow to open. But we were glad we came here. The highlight was the four huge stage backdrops painted by Chagall for the ballet “Aleko”.
