Yokohama Museum of Art, Yokohama

(4.2/5 based on 180+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • 安排在一個城市深度之旅,除了景點,美術館也是行程必要安排。橫濱美術館展出的是以雕塑及名人、歷史的照片,藉機讓小朋友認識一些歷史。 
  • Recently, we have seen sasayama Quaternary Shin pictures power exhibition. Space went and Exhibition Hall, and the lobby is large, as the Museum is not the high ceilings, very nice. For 5 years after the exhibition went to 2012 is there new exhibition. Quaternary Shin's photo is nice, Sinorama is dynamic and

  • 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?
  • My favorite museum! They often have great exhibitions and events.
  • Loved it. Great contemporary and modern art. With a great mixture of European greats and Japanese. Highly recommend the place. Really liked the building, layout and a book which described some of the permanent collection.
  • Exhibition and permanent exhibitions are always looking forward to the visit, but always something a bit different feel. Less than museums and exhibitions of the good rate. Yokohama Museum of art is bad, not that it is just a matter of his own feelings.

  • Very clean neighborhood, worth a visit. Huge shopping malls. Gateways to the interesting design and a potential for great photos at night, but the day is already very beautiful.
