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.

  • His first visit at the Triennale. Very good piece will want to take pictures just in. It took about an hour and a half wider than expected,? Following the triennial meeting is a pleasure.

  • 11 once in three years at the Yokohama Museum of art until early to hold triennial had. In South Korea, Gwangju Biennale, in the area called Le seemed to hold this place also I want a regular triennial, this year's triennial is already over three years must be pledged, but that after three years the expectations really high satisfaction enough to be behind the exhibition. The triennial, as well as for special exhibitions, the Museum also held to coincide with the duration of the eclectic and highly recommended!

  • If you're looking for a unique gift, try visiting the museum shop. Tha last time I visited there, they had a good selections of 3D figures of famous art works (such as by Dali and Escher) among others.
  • The museum is very good! A nice scape from the madness of Tokyo
  • Huge museum with very interesting exhibits (yokohama trienalle)
  • The exhibition was nice and space was fine. Wondering if the roof of main lobby a temporary structure or a n original design?
  • 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?
