Japan's first public contemporary art museum

It opened on May 3, 1989 as Japan's first public contemporary art museum. The building was designed by architect Kisho Kurokawa and is located on Mt. Hiji, a small mountain overlooking Hiroshima city, where you can enjoy nature and the view. The Hiroshima City Museum of Contemporary Art reopened in the spring of 2023 after being closed for more than two years for renovations. After the special exhibition held to commemorate the renewal, which used the entire building, the collection exhibition will finally resume.
