Art Tower Mito (ATM), symbolized by the 100-meter-tall metal tower that stands in its plaza, is a comprehensive cultural facility divided into three sections: a concert hall, a theater, and a gallery for contemporary art. Having opened in 1990 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Mito's designation as an official city, the ATM complex has served as the venue for a wide variety of planned events, including musical concerts, dramatic productions, and art exhibitions featuring both Japanese and foreign artists. In addition, it has broadened the scope of its mission to act as a base for locally-produced cultural activities. In the future, ATM will continue to be a locus of creative activities, transmitting artistic culture from Mito to the rest of the world.

Nice to visit to be with beauty and wonder. And there are always some events at garden inside the museum. I sometimes visit there with my 5 y/o daughter to take time in playing with. Walking distance from Mito station.

I was not planning to enter the gallery proper to see the exhibitions but then I saw that the current exhibition is on architecture. More than that, it is about architecture in Tōhoku following the triple disaster. “Architecture since 3/11,” does not deal with disaster-prevention...More

I visited this museum in December 2001 and was very impressed by building and artefacts. We with colleagues made several very nice photos.

This museum is a living proof that you do not need to be in on of the great metropolitan area to have curators not shy to commit with conviction and originality to contemporary art.
