The National Art Center Tokyo (NACT)

The National Art Center Tokyo (NACT)

Designed by renowned architect Kurokawa Kisho, The National Art Center Tokyo (NACT) is one of the largest exhibition spaces in Japan. Rather surprisingly however, given the size of the museum, NACT does not hold a permanent collection but is instead an ‘empty museum’, utilised by other organisations that arrange and curate their own exhibitions.


As such, it is best to refer to the museum’s official website to confirm their current and upcoming exhibitions and events. NACT houses twelve galleries across 14,000m² of exhibition space allowing it to host large events that will appeal to a broad range of visitors.


NACT also promotes educational programs and initiatives that engage the community in the arts scene while the museum’s Art Library can be accessed by the public and serves to further educate and inspire people of all ages and backgrounds.
