How to Get There

The museum is accessible by car, taxi, or on foot. On foot, the museum is 20 minutes from Toyama Station Central Exit or 15 minutes from North Exit. By car or taxi, it's a 10-minute ride from Toyama Station Central Exit or three minutes from the North Exit.

Toyama's newest major attraction

In addition to works by 20th-century legends Picasso and Chagall, the collection includes items as diverse as tactile art, pottery, and a large poster collection. There's something here for everyone with even a passing interest in art and design.

Get the stunning views from the roof of the museum

Come and experience the incorporation of Toyama's geography into the museum architecture. Special consideration was taken to include the surrounding seaside and the views of the Tateyama Mountain Range from the roof. For most of the year, you can head to the Onomatopoeia Rooftop and enjoy these sweeping vistas. Younger visitors will delight in a large and engaging play area, itself a work of art, built around artist Sato Taku's Fuwafuwa Dome.
