Nagoya City Art Museum Reviews
We went to this art museum mostly because it was close to the Science Museum, but we didn't even end up going to that one after the art museum, ha! There were several impressive works in both the... more »
Small collection of art with only a few noteworthy artists represented. We found it disappointing that the signage adjacent to the art piece only had the title and artist’s name in English. This is a.... more »
An ageing small exhibition hall and below average hardware setup. However, some very helpful staff and a few pieces of great quality art: Modiglani, Chagall, Brancusi... and some interesting Japanese artists. Perhaps due to limited collection the museum has access to, there is not much the curator can show his/her vision. Even the small museum shop has a few high quality prints. Overall worth a visit if you care about art.
The temporary expo Bührle is really nice. They present 50 oleum paintings depicting the evolution of impressionism. Although you might want to go early. It gets really crowded. At the end, you can buy a certified copy of some of the pieces from Monet, VanGogh and Degas.
