Tokyo Photography Art Museum, opened in 1995, is a first national general museum of photographs and images which is very rare in the world. It houses more than 33,000 pieces of art from home and abroad that are significant in art history. Besides, it collects things that are necessary to understand the technology, techniques and, culture of photographs and images. It has developed multidirectional artistic activities such as the holding of 460 exhibitions, educational activities, operation of the library, and research of preservation.
In 2016, we will engage in these activities titled “20th Anniversary of General Museum“, and starting from the exhibition “Lost Human Genetic Archive” by Hiroshi Sugimoto, an internationally highly evaluated artist who is active in New York, we will host various exhibitions and events.

With the renewal opening, the new symbol mark has been accomplished. We decided to call “TOP museum”, by taking the first letter of each word from English name “Tokyo Photographic Art Museum”. We wish to deliver ‘TOP' level of excitement, and the name has been decided with our strong determination as an expert in photography and movies.
Inside the museum, we have NADiff X10, which is famous for its unique goods and books, and Maison ICHI, with natural yeast bread and original homemade soup, popular in Ebisu area. Everyone in Yebisu Garden Place Towe, whether shopping or working, can easily visit the museum during lunch hour or for afternoon tea.
