Yokohama Museum of Art

Originally built as a pavilion of YOKOHAMA EXOTIC SHOWCASE ’89, it was officially opened as a museum.

In addition to seven exhibition rooms, it has an Art Information and Media Center with more than 110,000 art-related books and ateliers performing a wide range of workshops for children and adults.

The Museum focuses on collecting and showing modern and contemporary art created since the late 19th century, alongside many special exhibitions.
The impressive symmetrical exterior was created by an architect, Kenzo Tange.
It looks innovative and beautiful even today, though the quarter century has passed.

The entrance with a spacious colonnade of 20 meters high is called Grand Gallery–a stair-like exhibition space,spreading about one hundred meters to the right and left.
This space exhibits private collections of modern art and can be regarded as Museum’s symbol.
If you don’t want to go through and buy ticket – finish here ,and enjoy the academic atmosphere of this magnificent place.

“Café Ogurayama”, facing Museum’s front square, is a a naturally lighted café, offering its wide range of meals and drinks.
Visitors can enjoy preview movies for upcoming exhibitions, and some works of exhibitions held in the gallery are occasionally displayed there.

The museum shop offers about 1,000 kinds of products, including original goods featuring artworks from museum collections and exhibition-related goods.

Sophisticated original goods are appropriate as a souvenir.

The Art Information and Media Center houses more than eleven thousand books and five hundred and eighty video materials.
Expensive large-scale art books and overseas art magazines, that are rarely sold on the shelves of Japanese bookstores, are also available for viewing and enjoying free of charge.
They also introduce exhibit materials related to the exhibition held at the moment, so it might be good to drop by and learn some information before going to the museum.
