The National Museum of Art opened in 2007 as the fifth national museum in Japan following the The National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo, the National Museum of Western Art, the The National Museum of Modern Art, Kyoto, and the National Museum of Art, Osaka.

In the museum, it is common practice to exhibit collections in the museum as permanent exhibitions, and it is common to hold exhibitions and tours. However, the characteristics of the National Museum of New Art are not in the collection.

The word “The National Art Center, Tokyo” does not include the word “The National Art Center, Tokyo”.It was named “Art Center” according to the style of this special operation.It is a new type of art museum that does not have a collection, and plays an important role in art center, such as transmitting information about art and cultural exchange.

There is no permanent exhibition in this museum, so it is a big feature that various exhibitions are held throughout the year.At the exhibition, many exhibitions of valuable collections borrowed from other large museums have been held since the Louvre Exhibition held in the summer of 2018.

Other than that, the Japan’s largest public exhibition, called Japan’s Largest Public Exhibition, is held at this National Museum of New Art.
The usage fee and the exhibition period differ depending on the exhibition, so please check in advance before going out.

There are 12 exhibition rooms from the first to the third floor, so you can enjoy various exhibitions at all times, so you can enjoy art appreciation in various genres.I also lend a voice guide with a fee, so I recommend it for those who want to see more details.
