The nearest station is Hanshin Iwaya, but it is a walkable distance from JR Nada as well. Hyogo Prefectural Museum is an excellent museum that I can recommend everyone to visit. As it was my first visit, I just visited the permanent collection. Japanese paintings, by Koiso Ryohei and other painters, were very impressive. The architecture of Ando Tadao is also remarkable.

We found here a wonderful atmosphere overall. A must see place. Very nice museum which helps us to understand deeply how Sake are made in Japan.
Great experience.

This is a great building designed by Tadao Ando. Great accessibility for wheel chairs and prams with the ramps around the building externally. Worth a visit if you are in the area.

If you are visiting the nearby Kobe Earthquake Museum (its real name is "Disaster Reduction and Human Renovation Institution") on the harbor -- which, by the way, is an absolute "must see" place in Kobe -- and if you can spare another two hours, this museum is worth a visit. It is huge, for a prefecture-level museum. We visited only the permanent collection, but there are special exhibition areas and much more. The starkly modernist concrete architecture is fascinating - on a sunny day, if you are an artistically minded photographer, you could spend a day just shooting the various angles of this building.

The art collection is good (not great).. but for a prefecture level museum, it is really a very remarkable collection including several Warhol pieces, a Miro, and of course many Japanese modern era (post-1850) artists. The setting on the harbor is wonderful. There is a private subway line nearby (10 minutes) and the JR Nada station is also only a 15 minute walk. We visited by JR from Osaka, and it was really easy.

There is a fee but on this particular Saturday, the entry to the Permanent Collection was free of charge.

We walked over to the Art Museum along the quay and from the waterfront walked around the building to get to the entrance. The permanent collection entrance fee is a bargain (300Yen, about 2,5Euro). Fortunately we also took the special exhibition access which was a bit more at 1300Yen.
First of all, the architecture of the museum is impressive, and certainly inside you notice how well conceived it is for art exhibitions.
The permanent collection consists mainly of Japanese artist work roughly from 1900 to 2010. There's also some European/US work with a Zadkine statue, some Picasso and Giacometti drawings, and work from Andy Warhol.
At this moment there's a special exhibition till May 8th on Tomioka Tessai (1836-1924). We didn't know him, yet the artwork on display is beautiful. It ranges from drawings on paper, to silk paintings and others. You notice the mix of Japanese calligraphy with beautiful and varied art work.
A real recommendation!

I went here to see the building but the exhibitions inside were so wonderful and i ended up staying for hours. They have an English brochure for the museum that includes a map. And all the introductory passages for the Hodler exhibit are translated. I hope that they will keep that up. You can check their website before going to see which special exhibit is on.

A wonderful treat for fans of Tadao Ando, the architect. To be honest, being a fan of Ando's works, I was more interested in seeing the building rather than the collection. The building is a superb example of Ando's creativity in simplicity. Beautiful. Well worth a visit.

The Hyogo Prefectural Museum of Art has a very nice collection of paintings and sculptures created by Japanese artists as well as artists from around the world. The collection includes a variety of pieces done by Arp, Segal, Giacamotti, Henry Moore amongst numerous other well-known names. The complex was designed by Tadao Ando and is itself a work of art. The Museum is a large, concrete structure that seems monumental in scale, but somehow never feels imposing nor does it feel cold. For people interested in art and design, it's definitely worth a visit.

Although the permanent collection was not the most inspiring, the price is affordable (500 yen) and the actual building itself is worth the visit.
