A tranquil experience compared to many other museums, temples and shrines.
It's walking distance from the 21st Century Museum of Art.... and a must visit for amazing architecture and great thought provoking quotes by the late Zen philosopher D.T Suzuki
1 Way to experience it
Shima Kanazawa
For readers of "Memoirs of a Geisha" this museum will bring images to life.
Though the museum was a little bit small, the kiriko/festival lanterns inside were amazing.
After going to this small museum which displays the lantern floats I want to go back for the matsuri (festival) in August.
I have seen quite a few Automotive Museums in several countries and travel with groups of committed enthusiasts and our unanimous opinion was that this Museum is a must see.
A generation who grew up with LP’s, 45 rpm and 33 rpm music or remember the passing of 78’s will find the museum fascinating.
A local man's passion, his collection of phonographs, is housed in this lovely museum.
It's definitely worth your attention and contains some of the best work I have ever seen in Japan and I have been to lots of Japanese galleries and museums.
This very well-done museum provided an hour of delightful viewing of some of the most exquisite hand crafts I’ve ever seen.
Very informative small museum that shows how gold leaf was made, a tradition of Kanazawa.
This lead us to visiting this small museum during our trip to the old Higashi Chaya district.
Having visited a couple of space museums in the US and even participating in space camp for teachers, it was a fresh perspective on space exploration and made for a fun hour or so.
The other museums to visit in Japan are Mori art museum and the Yokahama museum of contemporary art.
One of the most beautiful contemporary art museums I've ever seen!
This museum in a restored old house/shop building has two separate displays.
The pharmacy museum on entry was OK, but not terribly interesting, but I absolutely loved the displays of traditional crafts past that point, and which I had not expected.
This free of charge museum taught us about life of Ashigaru, meaning foot-soldiers and the lowest rank samurai.
I thought the exhibits in this museum were very well laid out and very interesting.
This is an excellent crafts museum, in terms of the items on display, the descriptions in English, and the gift shop which features high quality crafts similar to some of those on display.
The items on display in this lovely small museum are crafted in the surrounding area and many are supremely beautiful.
A fascinating hsort museum next to the modern 21st Art Museum near the gardens.
However, just across the street from the city library and museum there is a super-market, so we put together a little picnic and enjoyed it in the park that adjoins the museum.
Unfortunately the prices in the shops are so exceptional high that the museum visit is the best to do.
