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,...

I went here on a rainy day, expecting to see some fresh artwork. However, it was a special exhibit of only artwork from the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston... and considering I have been to that museum more than once it was a bit of a let down. Especially since I believe you are allowed to take pictures in... More

We ended up seeing the special exhibit of art of Venice, which replaced the normal pictures in the main space. Some, but not all, of the pictures normally hanging there were moved to another space in the museum. I did enjoy it anyway, but I think I'd have liked to know ahead of time about the rearrangement.

This museum has quite a few paintings of well-known artists, e.g. Van Gogh, Picasso, Chagall.... but also has temporary exhibitions. When we went there was a Venice exhibition, quite interesting.

Who travels to Japan to see European art? While I was there they had a exhibition of European impressionists which was absolutely boring. Not the best works and although they advertised with some big names like Monet and van Gogh they only had one of each great painter. Supposedly they also have a collection of Asian art but I couldn't... More

The advertising promised much but the collection was not that special. It was a collection of European impressionists. However there was only one work from Monet, and some of the paintings were not the best examples of the period.
