UNDERGROUND ART MUSEUM
The National Museum of Art, Osaka| 国立国際美術館

First established in 1977, the museum was relocated to its current space in 2004, and the César Pelli designed building is a primarily underground structure. Visitors can only see the wing-like arch structure protruding from the ground at first, and have to descend to the basement floors for more. The museum offers stellar in-house exhibitions.
