Cool museum with both free and pay exhibits. This contemporary art museum is located in the center of Kanazawa, near Kenroku-en garden. The building itself is interesting, with its circular form and diameter of 112.5 meters. As one would expect with contemporary art, there are some quirky exhibits here, and a visit could break up the monotony of Japanese traditional forms.

So the trick is you don't need to pay entrance fee to see most of this museum. The outdoor sculptures, the amazing gift shop, the library and a few famous pieces are all free and open to the public. I spent a great hour walking around, enjoying the outdoor art and browsing the library/gift shop.
