The museum exhibits contemporary art from all over the world as a museum that moves in step with contemporary society. Visitors can enjoy works of art on display inside and outside that blend in with the museum building, with all of their five senses. The circular building with no "front" was designed on the concept of being a "museum open to the city like a park." It was designed by the duo, Kazuyo Sejima and Ryue Nishizawa / SANAA who won a Pritzker Architecture Prize for it, said to be the Nobel Prize in the world of architecture.
