The Tokyo Metropolitan Teien Art Museum was converted into an art museum in 1983. Originally the residence of Prince Asaka, the museum is a rare example of Art Deco architecture situated within a spacious garden.

Its beautiful interior has served as the exhibition space for over 170 exhibitions, including shows on subjects often overlooked by art museums like fashion and jewelry. Since a 2014 expansion and the addition of new gallery space, the museum has taken an active role in promoting contemporary art. The museum is located in central Tokyo in Minato-ku, a short walk from eith Meguro or Shirokanedai stations.

There is a gift shop, café and restaurant on site. Admission varies according to exhibition, and the museum is covered by the Grutto Pass.
