Nakanoshima Museum of Art, Osaka

A platform for information and creativity, built around a collection of modern and contemporary art and design from Osaka and around the world

Nakanoshima Museum of Art, Osaka opened on February 2, 2022 in the Nakanoshima district of central Osaka. It has a collection of over 6,000 works, focusing on superb works of art and design from Japan and around the world created between the mid-nineteenth century and the present, together with additional examples of the richness of art produced here in Osaka. It is highly rated for notable works by Saeki Yuzo, Amedeo Modigliani, works by the Gutai Art Association leader Yoshihara Jiro, and well-known masterpieces by international artists.
The museum aims to be an open hub for art-based activities, with the architecture incorporating a passage—an alley or arcade allowing pedestrians to transit freely—where anyone, regardless of their level of interest in art, can experience and perhaps be inspired by art as they casually pass through. The museum is proud to serve the public in its role as a new platform for art, exhibiting works from its varied collection and actively producing and presenting a wide range of exhibitions.
