The Nagoya City Art Museum began its collection in 1983. It is an example of playful, postmodern, Lego-like architecture, filled with 20th-century collections that range from the School of Paris paintings to, rather improbably, works by Mexican muralists.

The Museum is situated at a tranquil site in the southeastern corner of Shirakawa Park. The following is a sample of some of the works that you will see on display.
