A good place to visit. For me the Churyo Sato gallery was the highlight of our visit. Some really impressive sculptures in the sculpture garden.

I went here on the loople bus on a Monday but it was closed on Mondays. So I came back the next day. Nice museum and learn a little history of Sendai and Date Masamune.

Three exhibitions are usually held here. The first one is for its permanent collection which eventually seems wide-ranging but comparatively small. The second is a special exhibition which opens for only limited days. The last one is the Churyo Sato Gallery where we can see many fantastic sculptures and drawings donated by Churyo Sato himself who is a very famous... More

A great place to spend a few hours. The sculpture garden is worth wandering. I also really enjoyed the Sato Choryo gallery- his works are lovely. I could have spent hours with a few of the Kandinsky pieces too. Great museum shop for unique gifts.

This is the second time in just over a year I have been to this museum, based on their special exhibits - it's worth checking out the upcoming attractions if you know you will be in the area. This time I saw Vincent Van Gogh's "Sunflowers", currently on loan from Toyko. Entry was only 700 yen and it allowed access... More

I am an artist, art teacher, and have a degree in art history. I have to say I was a bit disappointed with the art in the museum. The permanent collection is fairly small. Unless you specifically love Japanese art and know Japanese artists I wouldn't suggest coming here expecting much out of the art. They had a handful of... More

There's not a great deal to do in Sendai, so this gallery comes as a pleasant distraction. I only visited the permanent exhibition, which featured contemporary Japanese and smattering of European artists, and for ¥300 proved an unexpected bargain given the overpriced nature of most Japanese galleries. There's a very pleasant - if outrageously expensive - cafe, which makes for... More

While shopping in Sendai I chanced upon a poster for this exhibition and had to go. From Sendai train station it was a short bus trip to the museum and helpful bus passengers told us what stop to get off at. The exhibition was contained to 3 rooms and spaced out well enough for the crowds to see. I was... More

The Miyagi Museum in Sendai currently presents an impressive exhibition Van Gogh in Paris. It gives a good insight of the development of the world famous artist in Paris, working with famous impressionist artists. Must see
