About the Museum

The Panasonic Shiodome Museum of Art opened in April 2003 on the 4th floor of what is now the Panasonic Tokyo Shiodome Building. The Museum is home to a collection of almost 240 works by French artist Georges Rouault (1871-1958), which include paintings and some of his best-known prints from every stage of his career. These works are displayed either in our permanent Rouault Gallery or in our periodic Rouault exhibitions. The Museum also presents exhibits on themes—for example, “architecture and living spaces” and “design and applied arts”—that are central to the work done by Panasonic (which opened the Museum as part of its social outreach commitment). The Museum has been designed to take advantage of its unique urban location—Tokyo’s redeveloped Shiodome district—to offer a cultural space in which visitors may gain new insights and experience new sensations through works of art.
