    Appeal of the Tokugawa Art Museum

    The Old Main Hall is registered as a Tangible Cultural Property by the Japanese government.

    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.
