The Art museum focuses on contemporary art in Japan. This includes artists of new and old. Allow about two hours to see everything that the museum offers. Wear walking shoes because the art work is displayed in several buildings. The harbor is directly across from the museum. A small restaurant at the museum allows one to enjoy a cup of tea while viewing the harbor.

If you are coming from downtown, take bus number 24. It gets you very close to the museum.

Wonderful small museum overlooking the bay. The building itself is worth going to see. There is a cafe for a snack or lunch.

This museum is stunning to look at. Incredible views across the bay and innovative use of light and shade make this museum an architecture fan's delight. The restaurant has a great reputation and the food looked great, but we didn't eat there because there was a 40 minute wait.

The only real letdown is the collection itself. It's relatively unknown Japanese artists for the most part, and little bit heavy on derivative pieces. Some of the art was good, sure, especially the more contemporary stuff, but on the whole it wasn't very exciting.

For our visit, the temporary exhibition was themed on animals; great for kids, lots of good photo opportunities, but again, as "art" it was quite a shallow experience that asked no questions, raised no issues and seemed to be more of a showcase than an exhibition.

So, it's well worth the entry fee just for the chance to explore the building (don't forget to go up on the roof!) but if it's the art you're actually after stick to the bigger museums in Yokohama and Tokyo.

The gallery was small enough that we were able to wander through in about an hour. There was a staircase at the end that takes you up to the roof. From there is a wonderful view of the sea (simply across the street) and it looked like there were trails in the woods behind for hiking (I didn't do that but it might be fun on a nice day). There is a parking garage on-site and we had lunch at the restaurant here. It was delicious! I highly recommend!

It was a surprising venue with a variety of genres from contempory to Art Deco to impressionist art. The very setting is lovely enough with it's mesmerizing views of the ocean across a plain of grass.

Yokosuka isn't a particularly beautiful city. Lots of concrete. It was surprising to find the beauty of this museum and its setting outside of town. It's a modern art museum, so some pieces I look at and wonder why? But, I enjoy seeing their exhibits. I am not an art expert. There is a gallery separate from the main building that had delightful paintings of whimsical children seeing music in everyday things. The weather was blustery so I wasn't able to enjoy the outside area, but it felt cozy to eat pizza and look out on the whitecaps is Tokyo Bay.

The building itself is the main attraction as it is built partially submerged in the hill that makes up its expansive lawn. The outer building houses a warm wooden framed structure with corner less curved ceilings and large round openings in the walls. No matter what art is on exhibit the building is a pleasure walk around and enjoy inside. It is complemented by a very good museum shop and a nice cafe with views of Tokyo Bay.

I had a really great time enjoying the paintings and drawings. My only disappointment is that there is not place for taking pictures for souvenirs.

To be honest, I'm not that interested in art museums. But I really like the atmosphere of this museum. It's a bright glass building. There's a large grassy area in front. Beyond that is the blue sea. On a nice day, I'm satisfied just standing here before going to see the art. Today, there was a special exhibition called "Royal Copenhagen and the Sparkle of Scandinavian Design," so I came here for that. It's much easier to understand than paintings. The explanations were actually very detailed and easy to follow. No photos of the artworks in the museum were allowed. This time, a table made of Royal Copenhagen tableware was prepared for photos. By the way, my favorite thing is the blue sea and sky that can be seen beyond the round entrance from the entrance hall. I love the artworks.
