The National Museum of Western Art was established in April 1959 and was originally based on the Matsukata Collection focusing on the Impressionist paintings and Auguste Rodin’s sculptures previously stored by the French government. The museum’s purpose is to provide the public with opportunities to appreciate western art. Since its opening, the museum, as Japan’s only national institution devoted to western art constantly adds new work to it’s collections, and has been involved in exhibitions, art work and document acquisition, research, restoration and conservation, education and the publication of materials related to western art.
Each month on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays the museum offers free entry to view the permanent collection.
