Himeji City Museum Of Art, Himeji Reviews

  • Good exhibitions and quiet space to enjoy them!

  • Himeji City Museum of Art, near the castle.

  • 市営ながらなかなか充実。旧軍由来の建物も重厚

  • 赤レンガ造で元姫路陸軍兵器支廠の西倉庫でした。 企画展でもJAF割が利用できます。 レンタサイクルシステム「姫ちゃり」が隣にあります。 基本料金:1日利用は100円 追加料金:利用1回につき60分を超えると、以降30分毎に100円加算 支払い方法: 現金またはクレジットカード

  • 元、陸軍の建物で、煉瓦造りの壁が大変美しいです。1983年に美術館としてリニューアル。内部は作り替えられています。大理石の内装がきれいです。入口すぐに、小さなカフェがあり、コーヒーの良い香りが漂っています。ソフトクリームなどもあります。2階では昔の映画を上映しているようです。展示で回る面積は広いとは言えませんが、それでも充分堪能しました。すぐ南に姫山駐車場があり、3時間以内で600円。あちこち回れます。
