Suntory Museum was founded on November 3, 1994, as part of Suntory's 90th anniversary commemorative project, in Tempozan Harbor Village, Osaka, where Suntory began.
This cultural complex features a Gallery for exhibitions and an Imax Theater with a gigantic 3-D screen, incorporated with a Museum Shop, café, and lounge.
Its unique architectural concept with a drum in the shape of an inverted cone embracing a sphere and two rectangular parallelepipeds stretching outward to the sea was designed by Osaka's own internationally-renowned architect Tadao Ando.
The Gallery, which aims to showcase arts and designs in "easy-to-understand and enjoyable" exhibitions, owns a well-balanced collection of over 15,000 poster masterpieces by artists, such as Toulouse-Lautrec, Mucha, and Cassandre.

(Suntory is the leading Japanese maker of alcoholic and nonalcoholic drinks in Japan.)
