The museum has 12 exhibition rooms, an art library, an auditorium, a training room, etc., and is also equipped with ancillary facilities such as a restaurant, cafe, and museum shop.

The south side of the building, which was designed based on the concept of an "art museum in the woods," has a glass curtain wall that undulates like a wave, drawing a beautiful curve, creating a unique appearance together with the conical front entrance. From the open-air lobby on the 1st floor, you can enjoy the seasonal view of Aoyama Park and other plants that blend in with the greenery of the area through the glass. In addition, various functionalities have been pursued, such as earthquake and safety measures with seismic isolation devices, resource saving measures by reusing rainwater, energy saving measures such as floor vent air conditioning systems, universal design support, and connecting passages directly connected to Nogizaka subway station. It has been designed.
