The Museum of Modern Art, Gunma opened in the autumn of 1974. The activities of the museum include the acquisition and preservation of artworks, art research and study, organization of permanent and temporary exhibitions, gallery talks, lectures and other educational programs. In 1994, museum facilities were expanded with Museum Shop and Restaurant. In 1998, Contemporary Art Wing, designed specifically for exhibitions of contemporary art, was added. In 2008, outdated facilities have been renovated to make the museum more functional and pleasant to visit. We will continue to create a museum suited to the twenty-first century. Major features of the museum collection are the Koho-an Inoue Collection made up of ancient Japanese and Chinese art, and a group of works by artists born in Gunma, including Fukuzawa Ichiro, Yamaguchi Kaoru, and Tsuruoka Masao. It also contains a wide range of modern Japanese and modern Western art, contemporary art and textile.
