Hiroshima City Museum of Contemporary Art will be temporarily closed for renovation until March 2023.
The Hiroshima City Museum of Contemporary Art became Japan's first public museum dedicated to modern art when it opened in the year Heisei 1 (1989). The building, designed by renowned architect Kisho Kurokawa, sits atop Hijiyama, a hill overlooking the city of Hiroshima, offering a splendid panoramic view of the city and the surrounding area's natural beauty.
The museum offers a wide range of events to introduce visitors to the appeal and the myriad ways of appreciating contemporary art, including special exhibitions and collection exhibitions that introduce the more than 1,400 works of art in the museum's permanent collection, as well as lectures and even in-person talks with real artists.
The museum also offers a number of services, such as explanations of works on display or daycare services, to make your viewing more enjoyable.
