The charm of Yokohama Museum of Art, built by major architect Kenzo Tange, is the contrast between the dynamic symmetrical exterior and the interior that allows natural light to shine in建築界の巨匠、丹下健三によって設計された横浜美術館。迫力のあるシンメトリーな外観と自然光の差し込むやさしい内部空間が魅力だ。館内に入ると吹き抜けの広大なエントランスホールが広がる(写真)。このグランドギャラリーと呼ばれる空間では芸術交流・文化発信の場として、各種イベントが開催されている。




開館時間:10:00〜18:00 企画展開催中の金曜日は20:00まで(入館は閉館の30分前)

. As you enter into the building, there is a spacious entrance hall (photo). Various events are held in this space called “grand gallery.” It functions as a place of art exchanges and cultural exhibitions.

It was originally established as a pavilion of Yokohama Exotic Showcase 89 and it was officially opened on 3rd November in 1989. It provides a restaurant, a café, a museum shop, a lecture hall, an art gallery, a citizen and children’s atelier which holds lectures. There is also an information center providing resources including an image source bank, 90000 art books, seven exhibition rooms.

The museum’s collection includes over 9000 art pieces of domestic and international talents from Japanese artists around the Meiji period to Salvador Dali, Rene Francois Ghislain Magritte, Paul Cezanne and Pablo Picasso from late 19th century to the present age. Fulfilled photo collections (as Yokohama is one of the birthplace of photography) are introduced through the exhibition “YMA collection”. Other temporary exhibitions are held about four times in a year.

We recommend having a break after viewing the exhibitions at the restaurant or the café serving special menus linking with temporary exhibitions at that time. And also the museum accomodates visitors coming with children to be provided several sevices such as renting baby carriages to accepting medical treatment at a nursing room. Younger than elementary school children get free admission, while younger than high school students are admission free every Saturday (with a Student ID). The public square of art in front of the museum becomes a relaxing place from kids to adults on holidays.
