Life・Museum・Osaka

The concept of OSAKA-HAKU is “Life・Museum・Osaka”.

The museums of Osaka provide knowledge and experiences that add new perspectives and excitement to life (lifestyle, way of life, reason for living, existence...) for all who live and gather here. They also nurture the wisdom that will be passed on to future generations.

In order to make a better life for each and every one of us, and to pass on the brilliance of Osaka as a cultural city inherited from our predecessors to the future, we, the museums of Osaka, will hold “OSAKA-HAKU” under the concept of “Life・Museum・Osaka” and move forward into the future.
