The "Fukushima Prefectural Museum of Art" located in Nishozan Moriai, Fukushima City was founded in 1984 together with the Fukushima Prefecture Library situated next to it. It's a symbol of Fukushima Prefecture and located at the foot of Mount Shinobu which in spring is crowded with many cherry blossom viewers. As it's only two stations away from Fukushima Station, it's easily accessible, but yet it's located in the midst of nature surrounded by trees and flowers. The museum houses over 2200 works, including French Impressionists, 20th century American Realists such as Ben Shahn or Wyeth, a collection of Japanese woodblock artist Kiyoshi Saito of more than 400 pieces, as well as Japanese films, foreign films, woodblock prints, sculptures, and crafts. Since it's only about 4 minutes to Fukushima Station, it also is a good place for accommodation, sightseeing, or food.
