Went for the Nara Yoshitomo special exhibition that was at the museum and it was a wonderful experience. The museum is easy to get to from Aomori City and itself, an architectural piece to admire. Definitely worth a visit.

Impressive building, great special exhibit on contemporary artist Yoshimoto Nara who grew up in region. They recreated one of his favorite American music hole in the wall bar. The permanent exhibits at about ¥500 are well worth it. The special exhibit was an extra 1500 but it was the majority of the museum space. We visited in winter and it was busy but not crowded. A little bit out of the city but there were always taxis and the parking was free. It would be better to come in summer when you can join it with the Jumon site a short walk away. Only one cafe, which always has a waiting list, see separate review of the 4 Cats cafe.

Beautiful museum inside out! The architecture is elegant with the concept of simple white that blends with snow in the winter. The exhibitions are also very interesting. We came during the Yoshitomo Nara’s special exhibition, but be sure to check out the permanent collections they have here too!

A well known long run Aori museum of art with the exhibit that change with a scheduled art exhibition all over the years. Went there on Feb and lucky to see the famous Aomori-ken ( White large dog statue) with the snow hat ontop of it ❄️👒 The vibe of this museum is very peaceful and calming your mind . Recommended☺️
