The museum exhibits artwork collected over more than 40 years by Teruyuki Yamazaki, the late founder of Yamazaki Mazak Corporation, which manufactured machine tools. With paintings ranging from the Rococo in the 18th century to Neoclassical painter Ingres, Romantic painter Delacroix, Realism, Impressionism, and the Ecole de Paris, visitors can experience an overview of the history of French art encompassing 300 years. Furthermore, a wide variety of glasswork and furniture, including work by Emile Galle—a renowned artist of the Art Nouveau movement—is on display. Visit the Mazak Machine Tool Gallery (free admission) on the first floor of the adjacent office building to see machine tools and parts.
