The art museum at the Mori tower 53F with an above sea level of 250 meters.
The idea is based on “Modernity” and “Internationalism” of the art museum, and the exhibition of the present age art which includes the construction in the world, a design, etc. focus on Asia is held. It has been engaged in educational spread activities, and is also charged with the role of spreading the charm of an art into society. They are displayed consecutively to the public one by one as the “MAM Collection” since the time of the renewal in 2015 in the permanent collection exhibition room where being excellent at a view, and arranged. The feature is that you can face modern art while relaxing.
Original plan exhibitions, such as “Roppongi crossing” series which introduces the trend of an art scene of Japan once in three years, the private exhibition of domestic and foreign artists around Asia, and the theme exhibition which introduces various works of all ages and countries, are developed colorfully, and the part of them is toured internationally.
It is opening till 22:00 based on the motto “Art & Life” of this museum. Work description and a voice guide are prepared not only in Japanese but in English, and there are also many foreign users. Unique public programs, such as “art of parent and child” which is accompanied by infants and can appreciate an artistic work with a guide, and “an art seen by the ear and a hand” for a visually impaired person, are also substantial.
This is an object of the huge spider, which exists in the center of an open space called the “66 Plaza” of the Mori tower with Mori Art Museum, and is conspicuous anyhow. Seemingly it has a name of “Maman”, and when you stand right below, it turns out that many eggs are held into the belly. Since there are also many benches on the outskirts, you can also sit down relaxedly.
A network called “the Roppongi art triangle” was formed by three museums of “the National Art Center”, “Suntory Museum of Art”, and “Mori Art Museum” for the purpose of activating Roppongi by an art. By presenting half-ticket of the exhibition currently held at each museum, the admission fee of other two art museums is discounted, or distribution of the map which carried art information etc. are carried out.
