About the Museum
The Yayoi Kusama Museum opened in 2017 to showcase the work of Yayoi Kusama, one of the world's most well-known contemporary artists. The museum is arranged over five storeys in a modest white building designed by the architectural firm Kume Sekkei in Shinjuku, a residential area near Kusama’s studio. It is being run by a foundation established by Kusama to support the display of her work now and after her death. To make sure that the museum is not overwhelmed, the number of visitors is limited to a total of 200 per day, in four one-and-a-half hour slots. Admission must be booked in advance.
