Japan’s first public art museum, founded in 1926.
Features Special Exhibitions for encounters with the world’s art masterpieces and colorful Thematic Exhibitions, while hosting Public Entry Exhibitions by art groups—some 280 each year.
In its role as a “doorway to art,” the museum also offers art communication programs and other wide-ranging activities.
The museum building by MAYEKAWA Kunio, a master of Japanese modernist architecture, is an absolute highlight.
Visitors are welcome to simply come and use the museum’s restaurants and shop.
