Reopening of the Yamatane Museum of Art

The Yamatane Museum of Art has been closed since Saturday, April 4, to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). We will reopen the special exhibition Sakura, Sakura, Sakura 2020― Flower Viewing at the Museum on Saturday, July 18. For the reopening, we will shorten our opening hours and will be using an online timed-entry reservation system (tickets for specific days and times) to prevent overcrowding, in addition to other measures to safeguard against COVID-19 so that visitors may view an exhibition comfortably. Tickets will also be available at the museum’s reception desk. When the museum is crowded, however, admission will be limited, and visitors who do not have online tickets may be asked to wait before entering. Those who have used our online reservation system to secure their tickets, however, will not need to wait.
Please check our website for the latest information before your visit.
