Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum, Taito

(340+ reviews on the web)
Art Museum Museum
Admire an array of art exhibits at Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum, a cultural institution located within a wider public park. Originally opened in 1926, the facility underwent major changes in 1975 and 2010, creating a contemporary space that appeals inside and out. The six galleries host exhibits on a range of international art scenes and artists; each space serves only for temporary shows, as the museum does not have a permanent collection. Head back into the European Renaissance, get to know contemporary Japanese artists, or admire folk art from across the globe at this ever-changing venue. Check the website to see what's on currently. By using our Tokyo travel itinerary planner, you can arrange your visit to Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum and other attractions in Tokyo.
