Admire the museum's architecture, itself a work of art that stands out among the other buildings in Kanazawa's city center. Designed by the Japanese architects Kazuyo Sejima and Ryue Nishizawa of the architectural office SANAA, the museum is comprised of a circular building with no facade or main entrance, allowing visitors and enter and perceive it freely. Walk around and through a pool where your fellow museum-goers appear to be underground.
Children are sure to enjoy the hands-on workshops offered in the art studio, and the whole family can read up on the history of modern art in the on-site library. Complete with a restaurant as well, it's a destination artistically-minded families can enjoy together. Kanazawa is just two and a half hours from Tokyo by the Hokuriku Shinkansen.
