Aomori Museum of Art is one of the major sightseeing attractions in Aomori-shi. It's located next to the Sannai Maruyama historical site and can be accessed by bus if you don't have a car. The museums appears to focus on local art and Aomori Prefectural culture. During Fall/Winter 2012, the museum featured an temporary exhibition by Aomori native, NARA Yoshitomo, called "a bit like you and me..." I'm not an art lover, so I can't say I appreciated the art in a thoughtful, intellectual way, but I did like Yoshitomo's sculptures in particular. They were larger-than-life amazing. The dog installation located just outside the museum walls was gigantic and awe-striking.
