“An unexpected gem in Hiroshima”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012

I visited Hiroshima in February 2011. While looking for attractions, I discovered that the Hiroshima Museum of Art had a special exhibition, "Image of the Seine: Impressionists and Japanese painters" on Japanese artists working in France. The museum's permanent collection has works by Manet, Degas, Monet, Renoir, Van Gogh, Tolouse-Lautrec and Picasso. The museum was on the small side, but the special exhibition more than made up for it. It's also a fairly short walk to Hiroshima Castle from the museum.

“Not much more than a diversion”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2012

So we went, and guess what--all the Japanese art was packed away! What the heck? They have some European pieces, but nothing really memorable.

“Small but Worth a Visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2012

There are several rooms and a downstairs that are full of beautiful pieces. It's not huge, so you don't spend all day there, but it's a great site, and I would definitely make it a priority.
