When it opened in 1930, Ohara Museum of Art held the first collection of Western art to be permanently exhibited in Japan. Created in honor of painter Kojima Torajiro, the museum now houses an expansive collection of Western and 20th century Japanese art, with special emphasis on 19th- and 20th-century French painting and sculpture. Start your tour at the classically styled Main Gallery, meander past the pond where water lilies echo the works of Monet, and finish at the Craft and Asiatic Art Gallery to absorb some Eastern culture. Free audio guides are available. Make Ohara Museum of Art a centerpiece of your Kurashiki vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Kurashiki trip planner .
Ohara Museum of Art Reviews
事業で成功した大原家と、美術品を鑑定する能力を駆使した児島虎次郎氏が私たちの届けてくれた資産です。収集品も素晴らしいですが、美術館の歴史にも感銘を受けました。 more »It is the asset that the Ohara family succeeded in the business and Mr. Torajiro Kojima who made full use of the ability to judge the art of art. The collectibles are great, but I was also impressed by the history of the museum.
本館に入った途端圧倒されます。世界の有名画家の作品がこれでもかと見られます。最初の一部屋で2時間はウンチクが語れます。 more »As soon as you enter the main building, you will be overwhelmed. The work of famous painters from around the world can be seen as this. In the first room, you can talk for two hours.
good pieces but most of them covered by glasses without proper lightening Annex exhibition is better cause in exposed condition
Very broad collection of artists! I was pleasantly surprised by the collection. The facility is wheel chair accessible with the exception of about three rooms in the craft and Asian gallery.
