The Ueno Royal Museum



A museum located in the Ueno-onshi-koen Park. It opened in April 1972 and is run by the Japan Art Association. It displays a wide range of artworks including Important Cultural Properties. Although this museum does not have a permanent collection, it does hold creative exhibitions on a regular basis, such as the yearly modern art exhibition (VOCA) sponsored by the Museum, as well as publicly-sponsored exhibitions (the Ueno Royal Museum Grand Prize Exhibition and the Japanese Nature Painting Exhibition). There is a cafe in the building where you can enjoy seasonal views from large windows, as well as a museum shop selling original goods. Opening times and admission fees vary depending on the exhibition and should be checked ahead of time on the website. It is conveniently located a three-minute walk from the Koen Exit of JR Ueno Station and a five-minute walk from Ueno Station on the Tokyo Metro and Keisei-Dentetsu lines.
