Best season

All year


It is recommended that you check the museum's closure calendar as the exhibit maintenance schedule is irregular.
In addition, from August 2018, the Chichu Art Museum has adopted an online ticket reservation system. While you can purchase same-day tickets, a reservation is recommended as you may not be able to enter the museum if it is crowded.
