Review of Matsumoto City Museum of Art

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2018/11/24 A small museum for a great artist
The Municipal Museum is dedicated to the artist YOYOI KUSAMA, a unique artist with a unique, colorful and eye-catching style.
Reviewed:2018/11/16 A pleasant place
For art lovers it is a little short on exhibits of fine works. The museum has works of calligraphy and other works that seem out of place in my view. The works that are displayed I saw as pleasant...
Reviewed:2018/10/30 Good building and contents
This is well worth a visit. The sculpture in front is by a local artist who spend decades in NY but finally returned to her home town. I like that.

          Nagano Main Areas


          Nagano prefecture is an exciting mix of mountains, hot spring monkeys, and preserved Edo history. At the heart of the Japanese Alps, Nagano is one of the country's most popular destinations, whether in winter for its snow sports and the much-loved Jigokudani Monkey Park or in the warmer months for discovering the undulating hills on foot. For fantastic Edo architecture, head to the Kiso Valley for a 60-kilometer stretch of quaint wooden buildings that marked the Nakasendo route 200 years ago.
