KNEW THIS WAS TO BE A REPEAT VISIT
Nov 2019
Last year I was so impressed by this museum without the time to really go through it, I had to return to see a very nice French impressionist collection containing famous artists including van Gogh & Picasso to name just two.

Good way to pass a couple of hours

The museum is a beautiful building with a collection of famous artists, however they are not the best works I have seen as it is a relatively new collection acquired in a short period of time. Theres a classic Lautrec though.

Pleasant Small Museum
May 2019 • Solo
I visited this museum by using the HOHO bus that is free when you have a JR rail pass. The cost to get into this museum is 1,200 yen which is about $15 CAD. I thought that this price was reasonable as the museum had both European art and Japanese art.

The museum itself is located in a beautiful park with very nice landscaping. There was lots of seating so that you could comfortably enjoy the art as well as you went through the building. I really enjoyed my visit to this museum.

We went for a Saki tasting which included the museum
Jun 2019 • Couples
We decided to go to a Saki tasting at the Art Museum that we had seen advertised in a local Hiroshima paper.
It was a promotion geared towards foreign tourists so I guess it was promoted elsewhere as not many tourists would be reading the local paper.
The tasting was in the garden area, we paid the fee and then found out it included entry to the museum which was great. You had to do the museum before the tasting though which I suppose makes sense.
The Art Museum is a lovely architecturally pleasant place, it has some great works by some of the great European Masters as well as great local pieces.
There was also a large and terrific exhibition of the works of the famous Japanese artist Satoshi Kako, I was able to learn a bit about his life and works as I knew nothing of him before today.
We went back to the garden for the tasting and there we found we could have three different wines or Saki’s.
Friendly guys running the show but their English was limited, but there was a nice Lady there to interpret as well as other ladies doing a tea ceremony if you wanted to partake .
We all got on well and enjoyed the drinks and the company, took a few photos inside the museum and at the tasting.
A Art Museum well worth visiting .

Pricey, but ultimately a worthwhile experience!
May 2019 • Couples
As university students I believe we paid 1200 Yen for this museum, which is about 15$ Canadian, so it's quite expensive. However, to be able to see a nice Japanese collection, coupled with a very impressive European collection with artists such as Picasso, Van Gogh and Monet, in a beautifully decorated and architecturally marvelous building, I felt it was very worthwhile. Especially considering it's not very easy to find museums that carry European pieces of this caliber in Japan.

All in all, if you really appreciate art and enjoy spending lots of time looking and admiring them, then I think it's completely reasonable to spend the extra money for this attraction.

Fine arts
Sep 2018 • Solo
I should've done a better research before entering. Expensive entrance fee comparing to the contemporary art museum, with 5 halls of fine arts in display. I'm more of a modern art type of person so it wasn't my cup of tea.

Left a lasting impression
Sep 2018 • Couples
This art museum was a real surprise. The collection of works by French impressionists was particularly impressive: Matisse, Monet, Manet, Cezane and Van Gough to name but a few. I also particularly liked the Japanese art screens, which were housed in a room of their own.

The space is well laid out and sits in beautiful garden surrounds.

There are plenty of comfy seats to sit and view the art. All pieces had English translations.

Small museum but excellent quality art
Sep 2018 • Friends
Although the museum is small, the quality of the paintings is excellent and well laid out. The collection include works by van Gogh, Monet, Renoir, Modigliani, Chagall, Picasso plus Japanese art.

Definitely worth a visit to escape the heat or the rain.

Delightful Gallery
Apr 2018 • Couples
A small but well designed gallery in a circular form contains four main galleries and external galleries for special exhibitions. The permanent collection has a delightful collection of European, mainly french paintings, including a wonderful Van Gogh. A small but comprehensive shop and a coffee shop provide all one needs for a visit.
