  • Because it was a period when no exhibitions in the Museum shop. Just watch the assortment is rich in sense and buy fun. Long eventually, then I think oh, I bought this.

  • Sculpture, and nice view from the roof. In the nice atmosphere outside during the stamp rally, is fun. Stamp rally is only for children, but can you picture. Etiquette books are picture books. I went during the exhibition of Greece is very interesting topics. Permanent exhibition of Christian painting sometimes, sometimes an abstract painting is different, but I found interesting for the special exhibition. In cafes and Greece exhibition is SATCH, photography was in the original photo frame! That was fun.

  • 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.
