The Hokkaido museum of modern art is a nice but small museum. There was a really nice exhibition. I was just disappointed that I went through the museum in just 30 minutes.

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

Very well out together museum. I saw a travelling exhibit only but it was very entertaining and the museum was clean and nice inside and out.

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

This is a medium sized fine art museum operated by the Hokkaido Prefectural Government. They have a permanent collection section called “Collection Gallery” and a special exhibit section. We were lucky to see a special exhibit called “The Dream of French Paintings – From Impressionism...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

Visited this small modern art museum to see art works for "Sapporo International Art Festival 2014 (SIAF2014)". Like some prior reviewers pointed out this is not a big grandeur museum showing valuable modern art works like other modern art museums. However, the art works presented...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
