Home to works from the biggest names in the contemporary art world

Showcasing a wide variety of programs
In parallel with large-scale, originally-curated exhibition, the Museum organizes a series of smaller-scaled programs: "MAM Collection" introducing the works in the Museum's collection; "MAM Screen" showcasing video works; "MAM Research" focusing rather on exhibiting materials than artworks; and "MAM Projects" conducting experimental projects with artists from all over the world. With the motto "Art + Life" — aiming to make contemporary art more accessible — Mori Art Museum also supervises works of public art at Roppongi Hills and Toranomon Hills, and organizes art events in collaboration with the local community. The museum is open until late in the evenings except for Tuesdays, to enable visitors to enjoy art after work or after dinner.
