Museums & Galleries

The Museum of Kyoto

This museum is a great museum for discovering the history and culture of Kyoto. Permanent displays can be found in the History of Kyoto section, the Fine Arts and Crafts Gallery, the Movie Hall, and the Movie Gallery. Special exhibitions are also held throughout the year.
The red-brick building housing the museum was once the Kyoto branch of the Bank of Japan. This Important Cultural Property is representative of Western-style architecture around the end of the 19th century. Visitors can also shop and dine at "Roji-tenpo," a reconstructed Edo-Period merchant street.
