横浜美術館 yokohama bijutsu-kan

The Yokohama Museum of Art was opened in 1989 to nurture a rich civic culture in Yokohama by encouraging citizens to appreciate modern and contemporary art and also engage in creative activities themselves.
Appropriate to this international port town, the museum has focused its collection and exhibition activities on art made after 1859, the year in which the Port of Yokohama first opened. Photography has also constituted a key aspect of our collection, as Yokohama was one of the birthplaces of that medium in this country.
Another of the museum's important missions is to encourage artistic activities among citizens and children by providing various courses and classes. In recent years, we have used our experience in that sphere to begin education programs focused on art appreciation, too. Furthermore, to encourage research and broader appreciation of art in the community, we operate an Art Information and Media Center that collects art books and videos.
