Everyone from adults to children can enjoy

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. Two exhibitions are held at the same time, a “Annual exhibition” that introduces famous picture book artists for one year and a “special exhibition” that features 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.

Special Exhibition
Samiro Yunoki “life・LIFE”

Special Exhibition
“As if Listening” Komako Sakai

Annual Exhibition
Guri and gura: A book of happiness

A twin wild mice, Guri and Gura. The two love cooking and eating. The picture books are created by the sisters of Rieko Nakagawa and Yuriko Yamawaki to invite children to happiness every time they see or read them. 

This exhibition doesn’t show the original picture books. Instead of turning the pages of the picture book, visitors will be inside the picture books by walking around the gallery rooms of four seasons. Curious encounters and adventures, nice goods, flowers, and delicious things are here and there. This is an exhibition where children can be excited and adults can enjoy nostalgic memories and new discoveries. 

During the exhibition period, there will be various seasonal events around PLAY! MUSEUM to enjoy the world view of Guri and Gura. Please look forward to it.


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.
