Art museums of Hiroshima (Web only)


| May 15, 2020

The city of Hiroshima has two superb art museums. The Hiroshima Prefectural Art Museum exhibits more than 3,500 works associated with Hiroshima prefecture, including Japanese and Asian art and crafts. The Shukkei-en gardens nextdoor are also worth visiting. In contrast, the Hiroshima City Museum of Contemporary Art displays a range of more modern art, with a collection encompassing work that shows the history of modern art after the second world war, works that reflect the relationship between Hiroshima and modern art, and a selection of pieces from young contemporary artists.
