About the Niigata Prefectural Museum of Modern Art

The Niigata Prefectural Museum of Modern Art was opened in July, 1993 in the rich greenery of the Senshugahara
Furusato no Mori Park.
The museum is built on the Taiko collection which was put together by a local collector, but in addition to
Japanese works that show the evolution of modern art, we have gathered 19th century western art
from styles such as Barbizon and Les Nabis, styles which are closely related to modern Japanese art,
and display them in our collection gallery and special exhibitions. We also hold a wide variety of activities
that visitors can enjoy, such as lectures and workshops. At the Niigata Prefectural Museum of Modern Art
visitors can connect with the art while at the same time enjoying the nature of the four seasons.
