三連休の土曜でしたが、土曜にしては珍しく待ち時間が少ないとのこと。（電話で問い合わせた時点で20分待ち。） あいにくの雨でしたがアートアクアリウム目当てに訪れました。 着いたら10分待ち。 ぎゅうぎゅうの中、鑑賞できました。 金沢駅からバス利用で訪問。 バスは土日は、¥100で乗れる青い観光バス。 混雑していましたが安く乗れたのでありがたいです。 せっかくの美術館でしたが、結構な雨だったのであまり... read more »That was a 3-day weekend Saturday, but is unusual for Saturday and low-latency. (Waiting for 20 minutes at the time by telephone. ) Visited the Aquarium was the rain. If you get a 10 minute wait. While they could watch. Visit by bus from Kanazawa Station. Buses Saturday and Sunday's blue tour bus ride for ¥ 100. Not be crowded a cheaper ride. Very sorry because it was a long-awaited Museum was a fine rain cannot be too much walking around. Next time you want to come slowly.show original
The building designed by the Japanese architects SANAA is a piece of art in itself. Impressive piece (room with open ceiling) by James Turrel free to access. More big names like Kapoor inside. The Swimming Pool piece is also free to access for the above ground part...the underground part is part of the exhibition.
There's something for everybody. If art's not your thing then this gallery is unlikely to change your view but for everyone else this is a good place to spend a couple of hours. The cafe could offer better food.
Great museum interesting exhibits, better to go when there is less people.
Mainly went to see the swimming pool piece, line was way too long for tickets so I only perused the free exhibits. Great art museum, plenty of exhibits to please many different people.
Very abstract works which I don't understand but appreciate. Recently I read one piece of news about he strange swimming pool which is an arts work by an Argentina artist. The swimming pool is from this museum.
