Campus Members

The Campus Members Program is available to universities with the aim of having students become more familiar with Japanese culture and cultural properties. Students and faculty of member schools are eligible for free admission to the regular exhibition. Students also receive additional discounts on special exhibitions and member school-only seminars. We encourage educational institutes to take advantage of this great opportunity.


Note: Discounts to special exhibitions and events are applicable only to students of member schools. Member school faculty do not receive discounts to special exhibits and events.
