The architecture of this museum is definitely modern but its designer Kishio Kurokawa managed to construct an aesthetically pleasing building which blends in well with the backdrop of Nara. Dedicated to the noteworthy photographer, Taikichi Irie, whose motifs of Buddhist images and scenery of Nara spanned about 50 years, this museum is a memorial to him. The permanent collection was donated to the city by Irie. Exhibitions are held periodically.
