Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo 東京都現代美術館
Japan's largest museum dedicated to contemporary art
Within the green embrace of Kiba Park, the Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo's five airy floors house a vast and varied collection of post-1945 artwork from both Japan and the rest of the world.
Note: The museum is currently closed for renovations, and is scheduled to reopen in March 2019.
How to Get There
The museum is accessible by train and taxi.
Located in Kiba Park, it's just a 10-minute walk from either Kiba Station on the Tozai Line or Kiyosumi-Shirakawa Station on the Hanzomon and Oedo lines.
Artistic expression in the 20th and 21st centuries
The museum boasts a collection of 5,000 works that chart the history of contemporary art from 1945 to the present, and you can expect to find many different styles and mediums under one roof from local and overseas artists.
Two floors are dedicated to the permanent MOT Collection, which includes works by Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein and Yoshioka Tokujin. The remaining three floors are used for temporary exhibitions, and the atrium houses a different large-scale work each year.
