About the Museum | Outline

The Miyagi Museum of Art, which opened in November 1981, collects Japanese paintings, oil paintings, prints, sculputures and artistic handicrafts from the Meiji Period(1868-1912)to the present, some of which have a connection with Miyagi Prefecture and the Tohoku region of Japan. The Museum also collects Western art including works by Wassily Kandinsky and Paul Klee.

The Museum strives to be an "open museum", not only for admiring art, but also to learn art through various interactive activities. To help achieve this goal, the Museum holds workshops which are open to anyone who wants to draw, print, do pottery, sculpt and so on. There are machines and equipment for working with wood, metal and clay. Staff members of the Museum are available to provide assistance.
