The University Art Museum of Tokyo University of the Arts houses a number of major art collections.
In 1949, the Tokyo School of Fine Arts and the Tokyo School of Music were merged to form the Tokyo National University of Fine Arts and Music.
Since then, the collections have been managed by the attached library and have been used for education and research. In 1970, the Department of Art Materials became independent, and the Museum of Art
Materials were established with the addition of musical instruments and other materials from the School of Music, which had been stored in the School of Music.
As a joint-use institution between the Schools of Fine Arts and Music, the Museum of Art Materials has continued its activities for research, conservation, and public display of art materials.
Many of the items in the collection have been designated as national treasures or important cultural properties.
