The Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo, abbreviated as MOT, is one of Japan’s largest contemporary art museums that exhibits Japanese and international pieces from the 20th century to present day, with a focus on postwar art. MOT is located on the north end of Kiba Park and aims to preserve and study contemporary art trends, as well as educate visitors through art displays and activities.
The museum opened in March 1995 and reopened in March 2019 after three years of renovations. Its sleek, eye-catching architecture was designed by Takahiko Yanagisawa. Presently, MOT has a collection of over 5,500 pieces of art that it rotates in its permanent exhibitions. The collection covers a wide range of genres, including paint, fashion, design, architecture, and more. The museum also holds about six to eight temporary exhibitions each year.
Aside from its exhibits, MOT is also home to a library with over 270,000 reading materials, a museum shop, a restaurant, and a cafe/lounge area. For continued learning, the museum offers education opportunities, such as workshops and art lectures.
Please note that MOT is closed every Monday and that you must pay separate admission for both the permanent collection and special exhibition.
MOT is about a 10-minute walk from Kiyosumi-Shirakawa Station and about a 15-minute walk from Kiba Station or Kikukawa Station.
