Hokkaido Museum of Modern Art

Hokkaido Museum of Modern Art

Located next to the Hokkaido Governor’s Official Residence, the Hokkaido Museum of Modern Art’s art collection is the greatest in Hokkaido.

Since opening in 1977, the museum has shown many permanent collection exhibitions, which introduce works from its varied collection according to various themes, and special exhibitions of unique domestic and foreign works. The collection is primarily focused on the works of Hokkaido-associated painters and sculptors such as Tamako Kataoka, Eien Iwahashi, Kinjiro Kida, and Nissho Kanda. It also includes an acclaimed collection of glassworks ranging from the Art Nouveau to modern period. The collection of works by the “School of Paris” painters including Jules Pascin are also not to be missed.
