Kyoto City KYOCERA Museum of Art

Kyoto City KYOCERA Museum of Art

This museum was first established in 1933 to commemorate the enthronement of the Emperor Showa. It was made possible by donations from business circles, art circles, and citizens in the Kansai area, and with a rich history, it is the oldest existing public art museum in Japan. While thoroughly respecting the Japanese-Western design of the original main building, the museum was refurbished in 2020 and reborn as a modern art museum with updated functions. The open-plan museum has many public spaces, and visitors can enjoy both the exhibitions and the architecture of the museum itself. The spacious interior hosts seasonal exhibitions in the Collection Room, special exhibitions, and exhibitions by various artistic organizations at the same time, giving visitors access to stunning art throughout the year.
