Reviewed:2014/06/30 small and focussed
Wonderful Japanese print making exhibit with English explanations of the theme of the print as well as the history of the artist; lovely small museum, not overwhelming

JR山形駅から徒歩で行ける場所にある美術館です。『山形総合美術展』が開催されてました。人は、多かったです。常設エリアは、作品が充実しているのに
人は、少なかったです。おかげで、ゆっくり鑑賞できました〇
Reviewed:2018/08/28 素晴らしい!信じられません!
悪天候だったので暇つぶしに行ってみたら、もう、驚き!印象派の有名画家の絵が常設してあり、しかもガラガラ!企画展では画家の子供の頃の絵があり、さすがに小さいころからデッサンや物を捉える眼が素晴らしく、才能とはこういうものかと思いました。足が棒になるまで半日楽しみました。

          Although often overlooked, Yamagata prefecture by no means lacks appeal: the Yamadera temple trail through the mountains, deliciously tender Yonezawa wagyu, and over 100 steaming hot springs, most notably Zao Onsen, await visitors. When winter comes, the snowcapped peaks become dotted with skiers by day and onsen-goers by night, while summer brings the celebration of juicy Yamagata cherries.
