Excellent museum
Aug 2020 • Solo
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.

Architectural gem by the Kobe harbor
Dec 2019
A stroll around the building and its interiors is in itself a tour of architectural beauty. Designed by famed Japanese architect Tadao Ando, the museum speaks of Japanese and foreign modern art in their finest. Many sculptures adorn the premises often set against the mountain and the sea backdrops in the north and in the south, respectively. There are many spots of great photography. Inside, among the most notable and a late added building between the three original buildings is a dedicated Tadao Ando Gallery filled with very informative narrative of his life and works. It feels like a Tadao Ando shrine once you get inside!

A surprise highlight of our trip to Japan!
Aug 2019
We saw a poster for the Yamamura Collection while in Kyoto, and decided to take a train to Kobe for the day to visit it. This museum and that exhibition in particular are absolutely gorgeous, beautifully curated and laid out, and a joy to experience. I doubt this museum is on many foreign travelers' itineraries, but it should be! Because our time was limited we did not see much of the permanent collection, but the museum itself is stunning with amazing architecture and views and phenomenal exhibits if the Yamamura Collection is any indication.

Special exhibition - Raymond Savignac
Dec 2018 • Solo
Didn't know what to expect but then came across the Savignac exhibition and was blown away, very smart use of poster as ad back in the days, and pardon my ignorance for not knowing the brand bic partnered with him, and i'd been using bic product during my high school year!

Major Art Museum in Kansai Area.
Sep 2018 • Solo
After the earthquake in Kobe Tadao Ando, born in Osaka, wanted to build a new museum which shows a relationship to the location in Kobe. That is why it is situated at the waterfront. The building itself is very modern and unique, its galleries can be adjusted to the different exhibitions. If you are interested in museum architecture this is the place to go. The quality of the exhibitions is very high. Because of the long history of Germans living in Kobe the museum has special interest in art form Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Exhibitions from these countries are frequently shown. I also recommend exhibitions on the earthquake in Kobe. Many artists in this area have found a way to deal with the trauma through their art, which is very mowing.
If you need help in research, this museum is well know for helping very kindly.

Great building designed by Tadao Ando

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.

Just fantastic. Great Ando building.
Mar 2017
Beautifully located. Ando (the architect) is Japan's best and most brilliant. The art inside is the bonus. They usually have excellent special exhibitions. I have been three times now and never been disappointed. Don't catch a taxi there. Just check out the local JRail. It gets you pretty close.

Amazing!!
Mar 2017 • Friends
I'm so glad we decided to visit! It was a bit of a walk from the train station, but totally worth it. The price was only $4.50 for a college student ($5.50 for adults) and we got to see some beautiful pieces. None of the maps or brochures describing the art was in English which was unfortunate because I feel I would've been able to appreciate it more, but still, it was a great museum.

Prefectural art museum

This art museum is a fantastic architectural landmark in the Kobe area. Designed by Ando-San. The permanent collection and varied exhibitions throughout the year are always worth a visit. the quality of the changing exhibitions is world class comprising western and Japanese artists contemporary and from the 19th century.
