Hiroshima Prefectural Art Museum

Thousands of Art Pieces in Hiroshima

Adjacent to Shukkei-en Garden, the Hiroshima Prefectural Art Museum is an unhurried way to spend a few hours (and in summer, a welcome break from the heat).

 

What You Can See There

The museum offers views of Shukkei-en from above in addition to its collection of over four thousand works of art.

Although its collection primarily focuses on Japanese artists, in particular those from Hiroshima prefecture, the museum owns Dream of Venus by Salvador Dali.
