Immerse yourself in art and culture and discover the unknown world of Okinawa
Okinawa Prefectural Museum and Art Museum is something of a rarity in Japan, in that it combines both a museum and art gallery into a single combined facility. The Prefectural Museum displays approximately 3,000 artefacts in its permanent exhibits, which seek to communicate the natural beauty, culture and history of Okinawa. The Art Museum’s collection gallery presents the progression of modern and contemporary Okinawan art up to the present day. The museum also holds special exhibits and workshops from time to time, on an irregular basis. The facility also has shops and cafes where visitors can relax, either before or after viewing the exhibits.
