Matsumoto City Museum of Art

Matsumoto Northern Alps Area 松本市美術館


Opened in April, 2002, the Matsumoto City Museum of Art’s four fundamental themes are Appreciation, Representation, Learning and Communication. At the entrance is a dynamic outdoor installation by Matsumoto native Yayoi Kusama. Her contemporary art takes viewers to another world with its almost hallucinatory energy. The museum features works by other Matsumoto artists as well as pieces taking inspiration from the nearby Japanese Alps.
