The Pola Museum of Art is known for its wide collection of Western paintings such as Monet and Renoir, glass crafts, and cosmetic tools. The space surrounded by nature, which changes its expression depending on the season, always welcomes visitors gently.
A transparent architecture that uses plenty of glass. Rich light shining through a huge picture window. It's a cozy place to experience the thoughts of Impressionist painters.

Many people think of the Pola Museum of Art as "the rich greenery that glitters in the sunlight," but the quietness of a snow-covered day is exceptional. It's a special landscape, only a few days a year. If the sun shines the next morning on a snowy day, be careful of your feet and go out.

The cafe on the first basement floor is a must-visit between viewings. It is a bright and refreshing space that makes you feel as if you are in the woods.

There is also a restaurant on the lobby floor that serves authentic European cuisine. We have prepared a limited-time menu for the exhibition, so it seems that many fans visit every time the project changes.

During the winter, the fun of singing wild birds and encountering small animals is reduced, but the high and clear blue sky is a privilege only in this season when the leaves of the trees are falling. Visiting each season and feeling the breath of nature may be as luxurious as watching art.

The Pola Museum of Art was opened in 2002 in Hakone Town, Kanagawa Prefecture, with the concept of "coexistence of nature and art in Hakone." The collection of the Pola Museum of Art has been collected by Tsuneji Suzuki, the second generation of the founder of POLA, for more than 40 years. There are 10,000 points. The building, which takes into consideration the nature and scenery of Hakone, has a height of 8m above ground, and most of the building is placed underground so that it blends into the forest. In addition, the promenade was grand-opened in July 2013 so that you can enjoy the rich nature of Fuji Hakone Izu National Park. In the forest where beech and Himeshara grow in clusters, you can enjoy nature walks along with art works.

The collection of Western paintings centered on Impressionists such as Monet and Renoir is one of the largest in Japan. Although it is located in a tourist spot called Hakone, you can relax and appreciate authentic art works. As one of our commitments, the lighting in the exhibition room is set to "Twilight in Paris in July" so that Impressionist works can be beautifully appreciated. In addition, you can enjoy it without getting tired even if you visit the exhibition or each season, such as renewing the original goods and the course menu of the restaurant according to the theme of each exhibition. In an architectural space full of light, please spend a time touching the rich collection and the works of artists who are active on the front lines in modern times.
