Nakamura Keith Haring Collection

The Nakamura Keith Haring Collection is a museum that exhibits the works and life of Keith Haring, one of the most representative artists of American art in the 1980s.

Founded by Kazuo Nakamura in 2007, the museum has a collection of approximately 300 works by Keith Haring as of 2024. It is a fascinating museum where you can experience the unique world of Keith Haring in the midst of the natural surroundings of the Yatsugatake Mountains.

How to enjoy the Nakamura Keith Haring Collection

The recommended way to enjoy the museum is to take memorable photos while enjoying the artworks and the space. The museum is not only home to many of Keith Haring's wonderful works, but is also packed with attractions that make the artworks even more captivating, so you will never get bored.

When you actually stand side by side and take a photo, you get a much more real sense of the scale and appeal of the work.

Looking through the hole in the passage...

Here, instead of the usual exhibition method of looking at the works from right to left, you can enjoy viewing the works in a unique way.

For example, this hole in the passage.
