The Mori Art Museum

The Mori Art Museum is a museum of contemporary art, which was founded in Tokyo by Minoru Mori in 2003. It is located at the top of the 54-story Roppongi Hills Mori Tower, a place visible from throughout the city.

The Museum does not have a permanent collection, but it is known worldwide for its wide variety of original solo and group exhibitions featuring works by many talented Japanese and international contemporary artists, including Bill Viola, Tokujin Yoshioka, and Ai Weiwei. Besides, it is committed to presenting various learning programs focused on cutting-edge visual arts, design, architecture, and other artistic activities within the contexts of science, philosophy, history, and certainly culture. It is also worth noting that the Museum collaborates with different art business professionals, art fairs, and galleries, bringing the best contemporary art to Tokyo. At Fine Art Shippers, we highly recommend that you visit this amazing institution at your first opportunity!
