  • Stopped, and went on a drive trip to Chevron, but happened to the Yamagata Museum of art paintings of the Impressionist school is quite comprehensive. While part of the Yoshino gypsum collection is permanent, and I like a Monet painting times background painter and that drew reminiscent of nature and society where the great thought. Admission is 500 yen and cheaper (permanent exhibition), the parking was free.

  • An art museum that has a nice collection of charming works (including a pretty collection of Impressionist works by Renoir, Monet, Manet, etc.). I am very puzzled by the zany contemporary art and unfortunately for me there was not bad, but there was in return too many works fine and delicate. Admission is 1,000 yen.

  • Thumbs up!
  • Good
  • In the Yamagata prefectural and municipal public art museum. It is this Museum Foundation was established to be the biggest Museum of art.  It was late and monopolize the mass media once was Chairman of the Foundation the Yamagata, told the Emperor of Yamagata Shimbun Lord Yukio Hattori, who. In the square of the masters can see and enter the first building in Yamagata such works, such as Picasso and Rodin?  And think what will be on display, remind us of the glory of the former dictatorial power. You can see the painting in the collection of works including yosa Buson Hasegawa can enjoy, such as Marc Chagall paintings in the permanent exhibition, Hattori, and Yoshino gypsum collections are both modern France well railroads and other. We recommend you take a look at that woman you like art may come to Yamagata.
