In order to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), various facilities around Tokyo may change their operating days or hours. In addition, some events may be canceled or postponed. Please check official facility or event websites for the latest updates and information.
Located on the 53rd floor of the Roppongi Hills Mori Tower, the Mori Art Museum features an innovative and rotating roster of contemporary art and architecture exhibitions with works by leading Japanese and international artists. But it's the museum's extensive research for the original exhibitions, and learning programs, late opening hours, sky-high location and added attractions of a cafe, lounge, restaurant and observation deck that differentiate this space from other museums.
Venture into the museum, and you may catch a solo retrospective by Japan's quintessential pop artist Takashi Murakami, a survey exhibition of art from a particular region of the world, or a thematic exhibition showcasing contemporary architecture. If you have a special interest in Japanese contemporary art scene, plan your Tokyo visit accordingly to make it to “Roppongi Crossing”, a triennial showcase of works by Japanese artists is not to be missed.

Should your visit not coincide, the Museum Shop offers a wide range of exclusive and well-priced knick-knacks; other souvenirs pay tribute to the sky-high museum itself.
There also is a combined ticket that allows entry to both the Mori Art Museum and surrounding Tokyo City View observation deck. For an extra 500 yen, you can journey even higher—weather permitting—and make a rooftop visit to the outdoor Sky Deck.
Varies per exhibition or screening
