These are members-only special programs to which those who have previously participated in the Museum Start iUeno project and registered as iUeno members are invited. They give children who have made their “museum debuts” the chance to return with their family members for a day of adventure among the museums of Ueno Park. Held three times each year, the iUeno Special days feature a variety of discovery corners set up in the Art Study Room at Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum. For example, the information corner offers pamphlets showcasing the exhibitions and events on at the nine museums in Ueno Park, while another corner holds a space for iUeno members to record their adventures in the museums on their notebooks. On the day, art communicators nicknamed “Tobirā” belonging to “Tobira Project” provide support for members both as they head out on their adventures and upon their return.
