About the Museum | Outline

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

The Museum strives to be an open museum for admiring and learning art through interactive activities. To help achieve this goal, the Museum holds workshops which are open to everyone who would like to draw, print, sculpt and create pottery and other art. There are machines and equipment for working with wood, metal and clay. Staff members of the Museum are available to provide assistance.
