A mediocre and relaxing museum. Adult admission was ¥370, without the main exhibition. Most likely requires no more than one hour to see all of the working great detail. A little bit difficult to reach due to its location set at the top of the...More

Some of the work is inspired by the A-Bomb. Otherwise, seeing Warhol Campbell mushroom soup tins in Hiroshima seems a bit pointless to me. The Le Courbusier (spelling?) models of buildings were interesting for my architect-father in law. Could have easily missed it.

First of all, they have a nice sculpture garden, and it is very serene & peaceful. Their permanent collection is quite interesting, and I caught an exhibit by a Vietnamese artist that was great. The museum is easily accessible by the hop-on, hop-off bus.
