“Friends of the Museum” Membership

The purpose of the “Friends of the Museum” Membership System is to enhance members’ appreciation of art and artwork through repeated visits to the Museum.

Volunteer Activities

The Tokugawa Art Museum Volunteers Association was established along with the opening of the Museum’s new wing in October, 1987. The association aims to enhance the Museum’s activities, offering free volunteer guide services for visitors, while concurrently deepening understanding and appreciation of art and culture among the volunteers themselves. Volunteers conduct their activities on a rotational basis once or twice monthly.
