I visited when there was a comprehensive photo exhibit including "The people of Kishin", a collection of 5o years of his work, most in very large reproductions. However, I preferred the collection of post war photographs covering the destruction and rebuilding of Japan both before and after the war. In addition a nice collection of Edward Weston, Man Ray, Edward... More

Having travelled down from Tokyo for the day we came across the museum which from the exterior is a lovely building. We paid the very modest 500 yen entry to the museum and had a very enjoyable afternoon. Worth a visit if your in the area.

We are fairly keen gallery visitors so went along happily without knowing what to expect. The displays and architecture made this one of our highlights not only of Yokohama but of our five weeks in Japan. The art is quirky, creative, interesting and sometimes challenging. We were just absolutely thrilled to have experienced the visit and seeing all the wonderful... More

No photos allowed but a nice little cafe and gift shop. Exhibition space was immense but with very few actual exhibition artefacts. We were a bit disappointed given the entrance fee was 500 Yen per adult.

The artwork was amazing. The Photography room was my favorite part. And only 1,600¥ for an adult ticket made for a great afternoon.

This gallery is very close to the high tower building that dominates the landscape. I really enjoyed my visit and would recommend it to anyone staying in Yokohama for more than a day. It takes a couple of hours to go around. There is a place for bags and there is a small shop at the end.

This is a small art museum compared to its types across the world. But there are some good exhibits and they do conduct some special exhibitions as well. Good to spend an hour or so..

Spent a couple of hours viewing the very complete Mary Cassatt special exhibit. All of her life is represented as well as contemporary painters. The English explanations were beautifully written. I don't feel as if I missed anything in Japanese except the explanation of how wood block prints are made. Not as much of interest in the permanent exhibit but... More

I visited but I personally do not like contemporary art. The area is very nice. The place was clean and well kept. There is construction going on for a park just outside. Lots of places to eat and a mall along the walkway. Worth a visit if you enjoy contemporary art. Takes about an hour or hour and a half... More
