21st Century Museum Of Contemporary Art, Kanazawa-shi Reviews - Write a Review

  • modern art, easy to access by bus. for modern art enthusiast. good place to visit. taking picture is limited by restrictions.

  • I'm torn about this place. It boasts big names such as Eliasson (yet feels like it was for the sake of it) and feels a little cold (vibe not temperature). Yet it's necessary for any budding city to establish itself artistically. Looking forward to the museum finding its own identity.

  • Loved it! Great architecture!! The exhibition "the pen" was worth the rather high entrance fee. The other part of the main exhibition was great as well. There was also an exhibition of high school students, which was a cool thing to do. I wished I had a chance to exhibit my work when I was this age. The second floor also had an exhibition which was free.

  • Modern art. Fun place. New projects displayed every month

  • Wonderful museum! Highly recomend the visit! Exibitions and museum building are amazing!
