The Osaka Municipal Museum of Art, opened in May 1936, is located in Tennoji Park―situated at the Chausuyama corner, the site of the former residence of the Sumitomo family. If you walk along the dimly-lit passageway following the arrows, you will see colorful paintings and ceramics through pale glass. The museum preserves many important cultural properties, housing a collection of about 8,000 works of Japanese and Chinese Art. The site was donated by the Sumitomo family to Osaka City, together with the noted Keitakuen Garden; the museum building was built by the City.
