三井記念美術館 は、東京都中央区日本橋室町にある、旧財閥三井家の伝来品を収蔵展示するために設立された私立美術館である。1985年、東京都中野区上高田に「三井文庫別館」(三井文庫本館は史料館)として開館し、2005年10月8日より、東京都中央区日本橋室町の三井本館(重要文化財建造物)7階に移転し、「三井記念美術館」と改称した。運営は、公益財団法人三井文庫。概要旧財閥三井家が所蔵する、膨大な社会経済史料の保存のため、1965年(昭和40年)、三井グループ各社の資金提供によって財団法人三井文庫が設立された。その後1985年(昭和60年)に至り、三井家に伝来する貴重な文化財を散逸させず、保存公開するための施設として「三井文庫別館」が開設された。三井家は、本家にあたる総領家を含め11家に分かれているが、三井記念美術館には、おもに北家(総領家)、新町家、室町家伝来の文化財が収蔵されている。北家(総領家)伝来品は、三井文庫別館開設時に11代当主・旧男爵の三井八郎右衛門(三井高公、1895-1992)から寄贈されたものである。円山応挙が三井家のために描いた『雪松図』、国宝2件を含む刀剣類、藤原定家の日記の一部である「熊野御幸記」、金剛右京家伝来の能面類などが著名である。新町家伝来品は、同家10代当主・旧男爵の三井高遂(みついたかなる、1896-1986)から寄贈されたもので、火葬墓から出土した墓誌としては日本最古の年紀をもつ「船氏王後墓誌」(ふなしおうごぼし)が著名である。室町家伝来品は1993年(平成5年)に寄贈されたもので、日本製の陶磁器としては数少ない国宝のひとつである、志野茶碗「卯花墻」(うのはながき)が著名である。他に、南家当主・三井高陽(みついたかはる、1900-1983)の収集にかかる、世界有数の郵趣コレクションも収蔵されている。

  • Has interesting exhibitions of Japanese art in unique galleries created from an early 20th century bank office. Just don't expect any English explanations, which is regrettable seeing it's in the same building as an international hotel ...

  • Modern day Nihonbashi Mitsui Tower from the forward elevator Hall and there is the Mitsui main building. Step into the Museum located on the 7th floor. Showroom Mitsui group former Executive dining room used as a front wall of mahogany flooring, it is luxurious. May be worth looking at just this interior. U.S. Mosler company remain in the hallway made of the archive room door is powerful and is a sight to see.

  • Depends on exhibition the exhibit, but seeing the exhibits in massive interior is great. I thought it deserves an invitation to the very colorful history exhibit enough elevator door is nice and timeless journey at the entrance.
