Aomori Museum of Art4.2
This modern art museum features mainly in the permanent collection that includes pop artist Nara Yoshitomo (from Hirosaki) and master print maker Munakata Shiko (from Aomori). The museum itself is a dug out to resemble the adjacent Sannai Maruyama archaeological site, and is reached by a lift that goes underground. The interior is spacious and the ceiling is 3-story high. The museum is about 5km west of Aomori Station.

The architecture of the museum is what makes me rate it 3 stars. I like the idea of celebrating the works of local artists from Aomori region. The substance however is missing. We have been to MONA in Hobart Australia and coming from there, this feels a bit disappointing. Can be skipped.

Interesting art from local artisans. The real gems are 4 curtains Marc Chagall painted for operas. They are wall sized gems

A must see for Aomori visitors. Not extensive but worth it. Take hoo on hop off bus service. Easy and cost effective.

The museum is very beautiful and the collections are great. You can see the Chagall’s artwork until 2020. However the Aomori-ken is very difficult to reach and no one in the museum would tell you that in fact you can reach there for free.

Layout and circulation a bit confused. Artworks are excellent, however, there are too many staff doing human surveillance jobs! The Aomori-ken (dog) is not easily accessible! The Museum has to review and make it barrier free.
