The National Museum of Modern Art, Kyoto (MOMAK) was established on its present site on March 1, 1963 as the Annex Museum of The National Museum of Modern Art in Tokyo. Its building, formerly the auxiliary building of The Kyoto Municipal Exhibition Hall for Industrial Affairs, was granted from Kyoto City after restoration. On June 1, 1967, The Kyoto Annex Museum officially became The National Museum of Modern Art, Kyoto. Seventeen years later, the old building was dismantled and the present building, designed by Mr. Fumihiko Maki, a professor of Tokyo University, and his associates, was completed. The museum was opened to the public on October 26, 1986.
