  • After a long time, is the second coming. When I previously came to sea views from the rooftop lawn square, we went to the roof. Or those who have to take a NAP on the couch. My son takes a sumo on the spacious lawn, was playing. Since few people without the annoying, heartily play

  • I went to see a special exhibition titled "dream Museum". Hotel is positioned as the staff as well as a book about the many artists including the MoMA. Many quite attracted by you, I was looking at the lineup of the special exhibition of the dates of the other, would be nice if this museum is close to the level I envy.

  • Tourist attraction-weary guests. Located near the Seaside Park, the surrounding landscape also goes well with modern architecture. Plan your trip to coincide with the exhibition is a great way to book in advance.

  • Nice art museum just next to the waterfront. I saw the Pixar limited run exhibition, which was very good. I also looked at the vaguely titled 'paintings' section, which was impressive, but not giant names, so don't go if you're only looking for very famous work.
  • The cafe inside is relaxing, with good view. The first floor is free admission.
  • nice architecture, good location, student reduction good spanish exhibition (given by a japanese war criminal) lots of foreign works due to historical western presence in nagasaki I guess
  • Art from a wide variety of artists. Beautiful building.
  • Put it in the taste of the Museum of fine arts, Museum of old-now built at the Nagasaki Museum of history and culture so far have replaced-was like. I think this is fantastically hen that the building of the park there is a lot of waterways that Seaside Park and glass combined atmosphere Museum of art, the ART of building environment itself?. And facing the waterways of the cafe on the second floor of the atmosphere the most fantastically window seat. It is recommended.
