I spent about 45 minutes reviewing the two exhibitions, both were mainly local and national artists works with limited foreign works. The Gallery is nice with high ceilings and it's a worth a trip to review the work even if you're not a big art...More

We spent 2 hours in this museum, for about $16 USD for two. They packed a lot of modern art into this place, including abstract paintings, Ukiyoe pieces and pottery. No pics allowed inside. There's also a café inside.

I would recommend going to this museum only if you find yourself in the area on an afternoon with nothing else to do in Sapporo. There is a minimal entrance fee and the exhibits do change from time to time but there simply isn't enough...More

There are two sections to this museum - one with pieces from the museum's permanent collection and one for special exhibitions. Both are small spaces, so it is worth getting the ticket for both areas. Despite the size, I was able to spend most of...More

For whatever reason none of the modern art part of the museum was open. However I still had to pay full price (1300 yen) for the ONE visiting exhibit. While the Japanese antiquities were interesting, descriptions were only in Japanese. There was no program or...More

Visited the permanent gallery and special exhibition. Both contain an expansive collection of art. I enjoy the permanent exhibits more. All description are written in Japanese. Entrance fee to both galleries are separated. Quite costly for me.

A nice combination of modern, traditional and a special exhibition made this a very enjoyable visit. I am not sure if the ukiyoe works, 100 beaties of Edo was a permanent display or a special exhibition, but it was an excellent presentation. The modern art...More
