Some of the work is inspired by the A-Bomb. Otherwise, seeing Warhol Campbell mushroom soup tins in Hiroshima seems a bit pointless to me. The Le Courbusier (spelling?) models of buildings were interesting for my architect-father in law. Could have easily missed it.

First of all, they have a nice sculpture garden, and it is very serene & peaceful. Their permanent collection is quite interesting, and I caught an exhibit by a Vietnamese artist that was great. The museum is easily accessible by the hop-on, hop-off bus.

The museum is located next to a park so it's a good place to stay for a leisure morning or afternoon. It is quite close to the train station; I took a local bus and walked through the Hijiyama Sky Walk to arrive at the...More

Hiroshima MOCA is a good example of Japanese Post-Modern architecture at its boldest. The museum had an excellent special exhibition and we enjoyed the permanent collection as well. It was good to see a Henry Moore sculpture on the grounds in front of the skyline...More
