Hyogo Prefectural Museum of Art

The Hyogo Prefectural Museum of Art was built as part of Kobe waterfront's revitalization and reconstruction following the Great Hanshin Earthquake of 1995. It is located on the waterfront a few hundred meters from the Earthquake Museum.

Opened in 2002, and designed by Japan's world famous architect Tadao Ando, the museum's architecture has stylistic similarities to the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, which Ando was designing at the same time.

Previously known as the Modern Art museum, the permanent collection is heavy on 20 th Century works from Japan and abroad, especially sculpture and prints.

Entrance fee: 500 yen for adults, 400 yen for students, 250 yen for kids.
