An art museum that everyone can enjoy. It is a place where you can freely feel, discover, and experience various things with pictures, words, images, and three-dimensional objects. Four special exhibitions are held annually. They feature artists and special themes from a unique perspective. At PLAY! SHOP and PLAY! CAFE, you will find many original products and menus related to the exhibitions.

Encountering the Unknown

PLAY! PARK, which opens in Tachikawa, Tokyo, is not a playground with readymade playground equipment and toys. The theme is “Encountering the Unknown.” Architects and creators participate to develop and produce original large-sized playground equipment, which people have never seen nor understood well, and nor known how to play it. Children can think and play for themselves and learn from it.

The venue is divided into seven zones, including “large and small dishes”, “factory”, “gallery” and “kitchen”. In addition to providing large-sized playground equipment, unique programs for manufacturing, food, sound, etc., provide “meeting with the unknown,” and a place where adults can enjoy playing with children in a comfortable environment.
