Add this to my venues

The Arts and Crafts Resource Museum was founded as part of the Kyoto Institute of Technology's educational facility. The items possessed by the museum range from paintings, sculpture, metalwork, lacquerware, ceramics, textiles and archaeological artifacts.
Since its opening, the museum has focused on collecting posters, due to the professors such as Tadashi Asai, who was interested in Parisian advertisements, and Goichi Takeda, who was strongly attracted to German posters. In 1995, architect Togo Murano donated original blueprints and the museum, as the university engaged in further research towards his accomplishments. As of March 2007, the museum has approximately 36,000 items in the collection. These items are exhibited throughout the year through permanent exhibitions and planned exhibitions.
