Toyama Glass Art Museum 富山市ガラス美術館

Toyama Kirari

The Toyama Glass Art Museum is located in the center of Toyama City. Built by Kengo Kuma, a world-class architect, the museum is located in Toyama Kirari, a multipurpose building that includes a library. Toyama Kirari is built with a combination of granite, glass, and aluminum: a combination of different materials making the facade reminiscent of the Tateyama Mountain Range. Inside, the building features louver flaps made of Toyama-sourced wood to create a warm yet spacious interior. In addition to the Collection, the permanent exhibition found on the 4th floor, and the other special exhibitions, the 6th floor features the "Glass Art Garden," an installation made by glass art maestro Dave Chihuly.
The Museum also has a cafe where you can enjoy the lingering feelings of watching artworks or where you can enjoy a good book you borrowed, as well as a gift shop with exhibition catalogs, picture books, and Toyama Kirari original goods.
