About the Art Museum

The Okinawa Prefectural Museum and Art Museum is the first prefecture-run art museum of the entire pre-and postwar era. This art museum has been constructed to encourage artistic endeavor, which goes to the very heart of our humanity, and by so doing, to enrich the aesthetic sentiments of the people of this prefecture, thus supporting wholesome social growth and development. The museum and art museum also intend to serve as a hub of artistic and cultural activity for this region.
While stimulating creativity and offering to the people of Okinawa and to visitors here a myriad of opportunities for arts appreciation, the art museum aims to become an international center contributing to the development of the Asia-Pacific region through its arts and cultural activities.
