The National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo, (abbreviated as MOMAT) is Japan’s first national art museum. The museum was initially founded in 1952 in Chuo Ward, before it was relocated in 1969 to its larger present-day location in Chiyoda Ward beside the Imperial Palace. The sleek facility was designed by architect Yoshio Taniguchi and has undergone multiple renovations and expansions to meet its ever-growing collection. The main building itself extends 4,500 square meters, making it one of Japan’s largest art museums.


The museum now offers free admission once a year on May 18 (International Museum Day).
