Suntory Museum

Suntory Museum


Osaka, Japan (JP)
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.)
