Appeal of the Tokugawa Art Museum
Construction of the Tokugawa Art Museum commenced in 1932, with the exterior design selected through public invitation, and was completed in the spring of 1935, opening six months later. It was introduced to the European architectural community as an innovative museum, equipped with the most advanced facilities for the period.
The Tokugawa Art Museum is the only museum of its kind in Japan, with a large collection of treasures and artwork inherited by the family of the daimyō class in the late Edo period. It can furnish answers to the questions, "What kinds of items were used in a Daimyō household?" and "What was a Daimyō in the late Edo period really like?"
Exhibits on a variety of themes are held throughout the year in Exhibition Rooms 7, 8 and 9 in the Old Main Hall, designated as a Tangible Cultural Property.
