What we do

Museum Start “iUeno”

This educational program for the 21st century aims to create new opportunities for learning through partnerships between museums, university, local government, and citizens. In this “Learning Design Project” facilitated by Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum and Tokyo University of the Arts, nine cultural and educational facilities located around Ueno Park are working together to help children to make their “museum debut,” as well as creating an active learning environment in which children and adults can learn from one another.
