It has been 33 years since MOA Museum of Art was established in 1982, and we are currently carrying out refurbishment construction to renovate the exhibition space and museum facilities. The renovation of its lobby area and exhibition galleries are being provided by New Material Research Laboratory, led by world-renowned contemporary artist Hiroshi Sugimoto and architect Tomoyuki Sakakida. Contrary to its name, New Material Research Laboratory is focused on researching materials and techniques used in ancient, medieval, and early modern times, and finding ways to incorporate them in contemporary architecture and pass them down to the future. They will be exploring a myriad of possibilities to design incredible spaces for the MOA Museum of Art. The concepts of MOA Museum of Art are as follows: The Fundamental Plans of the Museum We shall aim to become a museum transmitting information of Japanese Art.

You go to a museum for the collection, and this one's is great, spanning ancient Buddhist art to contemporary craft art. However, this building itself is a joy to explore and the views are superb. Wonderful museum.

This museum can boast more about its facilities and setting than its collection. The entry through the escalators is luminous & colorful. View from the museum of the city and Sagami bay is also breathtaking. Should take a break in the cafe and enjoy.
