Located across Shirakawa Park from Nagoya's Science Museum, Nagoya City Art Museum opened in 1988. The permanent collection includes works by foreign artists such as Amedeo Modigliani, Marc Chagall, Frida Kahlo and Maurice Utrillo. Japanese contemporary art is represented by Shusaku Arakawa, Tsuguharu Fujita and Tadaaki Kuwayama. The collection is rotated four times a year.

The facility also includes works by local artists, a temporary exhibition gallery, a library, auditorium, cafe and shop.

The Nagoya City Art Museum also hosts special exhibitions and the exhibition entitled "400 Years of European Masterpieces from the State Hermitage Museum" from July-September 2012 drew record crowds.
