21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, Kanazawa Reviews
よいと聞いて1時間以上並びましたが、結果はお粗末でした。なぜ人気があるのかわからない…。理由は以下の通りです。 長い列を作ってるのに、ひとりひとりゆっくり説明して、待ってる間に人気のプールなどは見られないと説明もありませんでした。 しかもA4サイズのバッグを有料ロッカーに預けろと言われ、各部屋の案内も足りていなく非常に残念。作品も2つの作品以外は観るべきものもなく、終始がっかりでした。あれだけ入場... more »I waited for more than an hour when I heard it was good, but the result was poor. I don't know why it's so popular. The reasons are as follows. Even though we were in a long line, each one explained slowly, and there was no explanation that there was no popular pool while waiting. Moreover, it was told to leave the bag of A4 size in the paid locker, and the guidance of each room was not enough and it was very regrettable. I had nothing to see except for the two works, and I was disappointed from beginning to end. If there are only such an visitor, please take a professional with a good feeling and guide it necessary.
Het viel mij tegen. De kunst was verdeeld over een 18-tal zalen. Het was zeer modern en deels onbegrijpbaar. Mijn vrouw denkt hier iets anders over. more »It struck me. The art was divided into 18 halls. It was very modern and partly incomprehensible. My wife thinks something else about this.
I never actually paid to see any exhibits while living here. The park outside is a good place to park your bike (or get a rental) and there are a few interactive displays for the kids. One day a week there was a free arty play group in the morning for young kids. Next to the gallery is a restored traditional building that depicts a garden tea room. Good for a photo. Read other reviews if you want to explore the novelty of paying for the experience of a walking in a plastic roofed "swimming pool".
Definitely check this place out. Cool strcuture and fascinating spots where you can take pictures. I'll leave it as that but see it for yourself. I didn't pay for the ticket since the queue was extremely long but still enjoyed my 15/20 min here walking around in the free zone.
