Art Museum Museum
Admire a range of modern international and Japanese masterpieces at Yokohama Museum of Art. The building's exterior features distinct symmetrical stonework, culminating in a 20 m (65 ft) high entrance hall covered in granite. Seven other minimalistically designed galleries exhibit modern and contemporary art from the late 19th century onwards. See works of Cezanne, Magritte, and Picasso along with Japanese works dating from the end of the Edo through the Meiji period. The museum frequently organizes special exhibits, and its media center has numerous books and art-related documents. Refresh in the cafe and pick out souvenirs in the gift shop, featuring pieces inspired by art from the museum.

  • The exhibition was nice and space was fine. Wondering if the roof of main lobby a temporary structure or a n original design?
  • Beautiful Contemporary Art Museum designed by the famous Japanese Architect Kenzo Tange
  • Amazing building and great architecture. But that's pretty much it. Wasn't worth $15 in my opinion. Maybe I don't appreciate art as much as I should?
  • The Kishin Shinoyama exhibit was excellent. Permanent collection a bit meh, building itself is kind of interesting but not especially remarkable
  • The building is stunning, but the collection of photography is poorly curated, the prints are bellow average quality and very poorly lit, huge disappointment
