The museum, built by Japanese architect Tadao Ando, is truly stunning. It is a very modern building (opened in 2013).The only set back is that the museum is entirely dedicated to one artist that not many will know - Tsuguharu Foujita, a Japanese-French painter who did hang out with the likes of Picasso, Leger and Man Ray in Paris in the 1920s. His huge paintings of Akita winter scenes are nice, but, overall, the museum feels empty. The museum café is a good place to sit down for a tea and enjoy the arcitecture and a nice view.

Don't come here unless you are a big fan of Tsuguharu Foujita. Not much to see. "Event of Akita" is a huge piece mural painted by Foujita in1937 decorate the wall. Also on display are some other paintings (less than 20). However, it is really relaxing to sit on the cafe and look over the water in front of us.

Exhibition showing the most important works of Tsuguharu Foujita. Huge impressive work in main hall. Rest not so interesting. Not worth the entrance fee

I did not see the attraction to this place. Only benefit was the cost. Little over 300 yen, thus not a huge loss. Perhaps I have been to art museums all over the world and this one did not do it for me. For the cost, sure visit it, but keep expectations low.

The art displays are on the first to 3rd floor. There is an entry fee to the second and third floor. I forgot how much but minimal. The displays were beautiful. The only one I can remember is the painting which occupied one wall of the second floor. The coffee shop had a very relaxing view.
