This event has ended.

"I. Craft Gallery for Kids"
From the museum collection of crafts and paintings, works with motifs such as the sky, the ocean, wind, trees, and flowers are selected to create an exhibition which invites visitors to "explore" the exciting space of the museum.

"II. Contemporary Glass Art"
Glass turns into liquid when it is heated up at a high temperature, and it becomes possible to shape it by blowing or molding. Furthermore, it is possible to apply detailed designs on its surface once it has cooled down. It is a unique material that transforms light, and using colored glass, various images can be created. This exhibition includes about 30 contemporary glass works from the museum collection.
