The 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, Kanazawa as a new-style art museum different in image from conventional art museums was opened in October 2004.

This art museum is round in shape as if it were the sight of a UFO that has touched down, all the walls are made of glass, and the building has five gates, which looks like a part opened in all street directions.

The museum exhibits experiment-type contemporary arts that visitors can touch or sit on, and includes zones where visitors can enter free. Both adults and children can experience an excited time in the museum. Some of the highlights of the museum are commissioned works, i.e., arts integrated with the building structure. These arts include a work that enables visitors to feel as if they stand on the bottom of a swimming pool, the surface of a wall colored with flowers gathered from the suburbs of Kanazawa, and a room with an opening on the ceiling through which visitors can see the changes of the sky.

Olafur Eliasson's works were installed in the square in March 2010.

The museum's shop offers a wide variety of products, such as original items in the image of the museum, accessories, and selected goods.

    Open : 10 am to 6 pm (closing at 8 pm on Fridays and Saturdays) - Closed : Monday (Next day if Monday falls on a holiday) and year-end through New Year holidays.
Visitors can enter the free zone from 9 am to 10 pm everyday including Mondays.
 
    Admission fee : Around 800 yen (for the art museum zone including special exhibits and standing exhibits, and the fee varies with the special exhibition).  
    350 yen (280 yen for a group discount) for a special collection of exhibits.
