Nara National Museum

Originally established in 1889, the Nara National Museum located in Nara Park, mainly displays Japanese Buddhism arts. The building was designed by Katayama Tokuma, former architect of the Imperial Household Agency. He built it in the French Renaissance style and was completed in 1894. The museum remains in the original building connected by new wings that are joined by an underground passage way. Both wings display collections from the Nara Prefecture, including Buddha statues, scrolls, paintings, and ceremonial objects mainly from Japan. Special Exhibits are held each year displaying different national treasures, including those from Todaiji Temple as well. English explanations are available throughout the museum. The Nara National Museum focuses on collecting and preserving cultural properties that have a deep connection with Buddhism as well as archaeological relics.
