Let's Go to the Museum: Dick Bruna Exhibition

A special event at the Takamatsu City Museum of Art

Apr 17th
Jun 6th
Venue: Takamatsu Art Museum When: Apr 17th - Jun 6th 2021, 9:30am - 5:00pm

A special exhibition taking place at the Takamatsu City Museum of Art looks at the works of picture book author and illustrator Dick Bruna (1927 - 2017). One of his iconic characters was Miffy, and the 1997 book "Miffy at the Museum" (known as "Usako-chan Bijutsukan Heiku" in Japanese) centered around Miffy visiting the museum for the first time. The surprise and excitement Miffy showed in the book is a reminder of the fun and wonder that museums offer.

This event will showcase pieces from the museum's collection alongside works from Dick Bruna, encouraging visitors to embrace that sense of wonder in art that Miffy showed for themselves.

Adult admission to the event is priced at 1000 yen.

Getting there

The Takamatsu City Museum of Art is located approximately 20 minutes drive from the Takamatsu Chuo IC on the Takamatsu Expressway. On-site parking is available for just over 100 vehicles.

For those who opt to visit via public transport, the museum is around 15 minutes on foot from the JR Takamatsu Station, which is served by the Yosan Line and the Kotoku Line.

I'm an expat who has lived abroad for almost a decade, including 7 years in Japan. I've also visited 44 of 47 prefectures and hope to get to the last three someday! I'm particularly fond of exploring off the beaten path destinations, gardens, and tea houses, and have a real interest in Japan's growing vegan scene.
