Bring a Camera
The 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art is a great place to visit that is kind of at an unexpected prefecture. But if you are going, make sure you bring your camera. The Leandro Erlich's Swimming Pool is probably the one location you have seen the most posted on Instagram, but besides that pool, there are plenty of great art pieces of various sizes, from one item to one entire room. You can easily spend half a day there and it is a great family friendly museum too with some interactive pieces.
A fantastic contemporary art museum
If you're visiting Kanazawa and you enjoy contemporary art, this museum is well worth a visit. One of the coolest exhibits in my opinion is Leandro Erlich's Swimming Pool, which is really fun for photo opportunities in an optical illusion style. It's also very conveniently located close to Kenrokuen, which is also a must visit when you're in the area.
