What a surprise! We did not expect such a wonderful collection of French masters, Monet, Matisse, Renoir, Rodin, Maillol, alongside Japanese artists. The HMA, located next to the Hiroshima Castle, is truly a delight. We found its architecture and layout both beautiful and relaxing. A cafe offers tasty treats, while the museum shop features an interesting selection of books and... More

I had visited the Hiroshima prefecture Art Gallery and loved the amazing artwork and sculptures by local and international artists. I was particularly blown away by the full version Salvador Dali's dream of Venus. The Hiroshima Museum of Art is not as big in size, but it makes up for it with the more impressive display of artworks. In the... More

We are middle aged and like art so this was a good gallery to see a mix of Japanese modern art (~ late 1800's-1950'ish) and some Japanese traditional art. The garden is very nice and worth a visit in itself.

This is a small museum that carries beautiful European paintings. The 8 gallery rooms are small, so there aren't many art pieces on display. But, I love the peaceful feel of the whole museum. The special exhibition is Wonderland of Anno Mitsumasa. Mr Mitsumasa is an illustrator and writer of children's book born in Tsuwano. He is truly remarkable. I... More

European Impressionists are our thing, so we were delighted to find this gallery whilst visiting Hiroshima. This is a small intimate museum which is great. It has a cute cafe attached and regularly has exhibitions. The exhibition during our visit was about Venice and the setup did give the area a somewhat temporary feel. The impressionist collection is pretty good... More

We stopped at this Museum's cafe for lunch, which was ¥1,000 for a lunch set, including a sandwich, soup, salad and yoghurt, after which we had a look at the gallery. ¥1,200 was probably more than what I'd normally pay for an exhibition of this size but the works on show were very good - including Degas, Monet, Rodin, Van...

A little bit of everything, not a museum to spend a lot of time. You see art works from Picasso and even Van Gogh, but also important Japanese artists.

I visited the Museum at opening time and was the only person in the building, except for a security guard. As the Museum consists of several small circular display rooms. I was grateful that I could see all the artworks without crowds of visitors blocking my view. The collection is limited to well-known international painters (Picasso, Utrillo, Marc, de Vlamuck,...
