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.

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...More

The art museum itself is a nice building to explore. Lots of stairs leading to different view points of the harbour; austere concrete structure. The permanent collection consisted of many wood-cut prints depicting fantastical fables of the west. There was a collection of classical and...More
