It is quite small. Basically one hall for the main collection, which seems to rotate quarterly, one for the special exhibitions. Costs around $3 USD for the main hall, another $3 for the special exhibitions. Keep in mind it is not in a convenient location. Outside of the main part of town. I think they could use a new curator. Some pieces were interesting, some were not. Seemed like they put some dubious pieces in just trying to keep with the theme of the show. Overall it was worth the price, but not worth the trip.
Good: Very nice location, on the top of a mountain. The art itself was nice, mostly the special exhibition. Bad: Except for the restaurant in the museum, there aren't many options for eating in the area. Not even combini... The price for the museum is ok, and there are discounts for students or tourists with the Hiroshima Visit Pass. However the price of the special exhibition is very high.
The temporary exhibition I saw was tragically beautiful and illustrated the devastation that occured in 1945. The permanent exhibition consisted of Andy Warhol and Takashi Murakami, a must see!
Small museum but very close to the memorial park. Worth a visit.
