  • The museum is modern with a good collection of art by Yoshitomo Nara, and huge backdrops of the ballet Aleko by Chagall. Aomori-ken (Aomori Dog) is situated outside the museum building. Visitors...

  • Gotta say, I wasn’t impressed. I paid the extra money (¥1400!) for the special exhibition and was greatly disappointed. Purportedly about the great east Japan earthquake 10 years ago, it was mostly a series of photos with tangential relation to the places and people. And a few “experimental” video projects that looked as dull, unoriginal, and pointless as every other “experimental film/video” from the past 60 years. Not shocking or disturbing, just felt like a waste of time. The rest of the museum (a bargain at 600¥) was mildly better. But, even then most of the art felt derivative and nothing I’d remember an hour later. The only 2 that felt interesting were Nara’s cartoon style work, and the last room with the original designs for Ultraman monsters. If you want an interesting modern art experience,skip this and check out Towada City’s. Just my opinion of course.
