Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The Sendai Art Museum is located in a beautiful area and can be reached by bus or by subway. The museum has a great collection of wonderful works. The visitor to Sendai International Center has to go to Sendai Museum of Art so it is very close

A great stop on the Loople bus route to rest and have lunch in quiet surroundings, as well as enjoy the great sculptures that continue downstairs into the garden, and some beautiful impressionist paintings upstairs. Their cafe serves excellent light lunch specials.

This is a medium sized prefectural museum for Miyagi. We took a cab from a hotel near JR Sendai Railway Station for JPY1,070 and got there in about ten minutes. Its location is at the northern end of the former Sendai (Aoba) Castle complex.

The art museum has three sections; one for the permanent collections, one a special exhibit, and one for a well-known Sendai-born sculptor called Churyo Sato (The Churyo Sato Memorial Art Museum).

When we were there in early April, they had a Renoir special with more than fifty paintings that was shown only in Sendai – a good curatorial work of the museum. The permanent collection is mainly for local, but well-recognized artists from Miyagi Prefecture. The Churyo Sato section is devoted for this sculptor whose works are seen across Japan and highly recognized in Japan. Since Sato refused any official honours from various levels of government, he is still not well known by the general public as much as he should have been.

I went here on the loople bus on a Monday but it was closed on Mondays. So I came back the next day. Nice museum and learn a little history of Sendai and Date Masamune.

There's not a great deal to do in Sendai, so this gallery comes as a pleasant distraction. I only visited the permanent exhibition, which featured contemporary Japanese and smattering of European artists, and for ¥300 proved an unexpected bargain given the overpriced nature of most Japanese galleries. There's a very pleasant - if outrageously expensive - cafe, which makes for a relaxing place to waste time in between contemplating what on earth there is to do next in Sendai.

The Miyagi Museum in Sendai currently presents an impressive exhibition Van Gogh in Paris.
It gives a good insight of the development of the world famous artist in Paris, working with famous impressionist artists. Must see

Great Special exhibit Miyagi Art 2019. Seeing the work of Rusu Aki was worth the price of admission and the train trip from Tokyo. I joked with an attendant about wanting to take one of the works and she agreed with my reaction. I really enjoyed the Churyo Sato Gallery and also the Klees and Kandinskys in the permanent collection. Definitely worth a stop; the whole place has a retro feel to it that is endearing.

The day I was there was the day they had a Finnish bazaar! That was an extra cost. The art work on the first floor was not very good. There were no special displays.
