Kyoto City KYOCERA Museum of Art

The Museum opened in 1933 as the Kyoto Enthronement Memorial Museum of Art in Kyoto’s Okazaki district, itself an expression of the city’s modern trends at the time. The establishment of the Museum owes much to the generous support of many local citizens.
It was renamed the Kyoto Municipal Museum of Art after World War II.As Japan’s oldest public art museum that is housed in its original architecture, its classical visage standing against the backdrop of Higashiyama has been highly appreciated for more than 85 years.
The innovative concepts of two leading Japanese architects, Aoki Jun and Nishizawa Tezzo, for the Museum renewal project introduced new designs while preserving original elements, thus allowing for a fusion of old and new to create a fresh image for the Museum.
We invite you to enjoy the new Kyoto City KYOCERA Museum of Art.
