What's included

Admission to the permanent collection of the museum

What's not included

Admission to temporary exhibitions
  • Explore an array of modern and contemporary artworks from Kyoto's most notable artists, as well as Western art by Picasso, Matisse and Mondrian
  • No two visits to the museum are ever the same, as the permanent collection is displayed in rotating mini-exhibitions throughout the year
  • Relax with a coffee or a tea in the peaceful garden café, and take some time to reflect on the museum's artistic wonders as you sit beside the water

Finding things to do in Kyoto is never hard, with the city's beautiful temples, tranquil gardens, and incredible food scene. But if Japanese art takes your fancy as much as cherry blossoms do, take a wander through the MoMAK and let your spirit bloom!

Marvel at an evocative collection of paintings, prints, sculptures, ceramics, textiles, metalworks, wood and bamboo works, lacquers, jewelry, and photography from Kyoto's modern art scene and beyond.

The immense permanent collection of the MoMAK is too large to be exhibited at the same time, but that's actually a good thing. It means no two visits to the museum are ever the same, as smaller curated exhibitions rotate throughout the year, making each visit unique.

Instead of trying to take in thousands of works all at once, the MoMAK encourages a more intimate encounter with a selection of works built around specific themes designed to move, inspire, and provoke thought.

At any given time, you can encounter exhibitions focused on Japanese glasswork, fashion, flowers, scenery, watercolor, abstract art, among many others. Artists represented in the museum include Murakami Kagaku, Koide Narashige, Yasui Sotaro and Murayama Tomoyoshi.

There's also some amazing Western art here too, with paintings by Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, Kurt Schwitters and Piet Mondrian.

Afterwards, let the masterpieces sink in as you sit on the peaceful waterside café terrace.

Free admission on selected days: 3, 14 & 15 November and 12, 19 & 26 December 2020.

MOMAK was overall a nice experience. My friends and I watched the 3rd Gallery Collection Exhibition, which was quite an extraordinary and eclectic collection of modern artworks. The service was decent. Especially during the COVID, it is a great and safe spot to visit and enjoy n afternoon watching beautiful paintings by Claude Monet to Picasso.
