Excellent museum - do not miss the Dali!
Nov 2019
The previous year when we visited Shukkeien garden we didn’t allow time for the museum and that was a mistake. The entrance ticket to the garden also includes entrance to the general exhibits at the Art Museum, and for seniors entrance is free (bring your passport to prove your age). This is a fabulous deal!

Plan a half day at the garden and a half day at the museum and eat lunch at the small ramen place just inside the garden’s entrance. If you want to indulge, there is a restaurant within the museum.

The general collection is enough to keep anyone interested. If you want to see the special exhibits, which are changed several times during the year, an additional fee is required.

Salvador Dali's "Dream of Venus" has pride of place, in addition there are many important Japanese cultural properties such as a lovely Imari porcelain flower bowl not to mention the amazing pottery horses. The Calder mobile could use a bit more space - it is up against a wall and the pieces can not move as freely as they might.

The museum is wonderfully laid out and the artwork is easy to view, for the most part (some glass cases made viewing a bit difficult). There is good lighting for the displays of paintings, sculptures, artifacts and screens by Japanese, Western and Asian artists. Information sheets are available near each area with descriptions in English and Japanese of the major pieces; the information plaque near each work is sometimes only in Japanese.

Definitely do not miss this during your visit to Hiroshima. When we visited there were very few other people there and we had most of the displays to ourselves.

Small museum
Aug 2019
It's convenient stop on the tour bus route. Small museum, beautiful garden. A few Western collections. The special collection is about a Japanese cartoonist, no English at all, so just a quick tour.

Art Museum
Oct 2018 • Couples
. A walking distance from the castle, this museum is a relatively newer one originally built in 1968 and reconstructed in 1996. The museum houses beautiful art, paintings, and study material. The structure is very modern and there are cafes at the lower level to take a quick bite whilst walking through the galleries.

Special exhibition
Sep 2018 • Solo
Got lucky and visited during the special exhibition on displaying works done by ghibli (a film company, most famous for works by hayao Miyazaki). Lined up for 20 minutes for the ticket and another hour for entering into the museum. It's packed, yet everyone was patient and are in good manner. You have to admire the Japanese culture.

Small museum but worth a visit
Aug 2018 • Solo
A small museum but worth the ¥500 to see Dali’s Dream of Venus. The museum’s art collection is small, but if you are lucky there could be an interesting special exhibition on the 3rd floor.

Small museum but attractive, located beside beautiful Shukkeien Garden. This garden was built in Edo period, Japanese style garden with pond and tea-house. Worth to see

Saw a good show here
Jul 2018 • Couples
This evening we went to the Art Museum to see a great local show.
It was a Hiroshima Cultural Night , that included Flute playing, traditional dance and a great Samurai show by SAMURAI UNIT TAIGI.
This is a great venue, hope to go back and see some art exhibitions in the future and take in more shows.

Good exhibition
May 2018 • Couples
We found the museum was having an exhibition on the images of women in portraiture from the Boston Museum collection. There was sufficient description of the major works in English, which made our visit both worthwhile and interesting.
A well curated, and displayed, series of works.
Very good day, and well worthwhile.

Modern Gallery next to beautiful gardens
Apr 2018 • Couples
When we visited there was only a touring exhibition and the permanent collection was not available. The building provides superb space for exhibitions together with a comprehensive art library, shop and restuarants. The gallery gives access to the beautiful Shukkeien Gardens - not to be missed. Concessions available on the Garden and Permanent collections.

It’s ok
Mar 2018
Cheaper entry to get with gardens ticket, had a good look nothing special rather small walked around in 20 minutes.

Best part of museum is the Italian restaurant and gift shop.

I would bother unless you really really love art.
