21st Century Museum Of Contemporary Art, Kanazawa-shi Reviews
TL;Dr I certainly wouldn't put this as a must see site in Kanazawa. There's a queue for tickets, and then another queue so they can time-release you through the museum. At 10am on a Friday morning I thought I'd lucked out but was ultimately still kept waiting about 30 minutes. No photos allowed anywhere inside which is a bit of a bummer. There are also two parts of the museum so you have to buy two tickets to see the whole thing - 360 and 900Y respectively. It's possible one of these was some kind of special exhibit and my lack of language skills failed me but they had laminated maps and things to show the division so it seemed quite permanent. On the 'adventure in seeing' side exhibits were all of the optical illusion variety. Obviously it's a matter of opinion but my opinion is this was all a bit tame and not really worth seeing. On the 900Y side (name untranslated) there were several rooms of photographic art and contemporary painting art. As reported in the last review several rooms were closed 'reopening time unknown'. Maybe I'm a contemporary art heathen but I was really underwhelmed by the whole experience, the swimming pool optical illusion is the only thing that remotely tickled my senses. I certainly wouldn't put this as a must see site.
Nice art space with a small but interesting permanent collection. Excellent kids art play room which is not crowded. Super grounds
Most of the museum was having the exhibits replaced but there was still plenty to see. The open glass walled circular architecture encouraged public.participation. We went on a rainy weekday.and there was.atill a massive queue. Disappointingly no photos are allowed for most exhibits.
One of the finest modern art museums I've ever been too. Get there early. Check what day they are closed and prepare to be amazed.
Great centrally located contemporary art museum. There's a public component — all the outer gardens and the outer permanent installations inside the museum proper. So even if you don't want to pay, you can enjoy, for example, one of James Turrell's Skyspaces. Well worth a visit, and good to combine with the DT Suzuki Museum just around the corner.
