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.

Wonderful gallery , well worth the trip especially with kids . The Chagall’s were truly epic ! If you do go ,make sure you read “The Lonesome Puppy” by Yoshitomo Nara beforehand it will make the experience even better. Also , if you go after late April during the warmer months you can be outside with Aomori Ken otherwise you can only view him from behind glass.

The exhibits are beautiful. Worth the 510 yen ticket price. There are other activities available as well (library and an area for kids), open park area with benches to relax, cafe. Good place to visit and relax.

The museum was very interesting. We were in the temporary exhibition as well. No pictures allowed!!!
Sad... they could have asked for signed forms only to take pictures for personal matters. But this is Japan we’re talking about. Much more to learn.

Quite a surprising little find in Aomori. Here, you'll find Aomoro-ken, a giant dog sculpture, which you can go right up to in warmer seasons. In the museum, you'll find a giant room with four large pieces surrounding you, and smaller exhibition rooms, featuring works from other artists, as well as permanent collections. There is also a nice little cafe serving Aomori apple favorites and tea. This is all for around 500 yen, which is pretty great. The only downside is that it is a bit out of the way, and the amount of things to do may not be worth the trip for some, but it sure did it for me.

My favorite art museum. A giagantic huge Aomori dog is worth watching. Highly recommended.
