Among the exhibits are three national treasures and numerous important cultural properties, including paintings, works of calligraphy, sculptures and other crafts. The museum also features a Japanese style garden with tea houses and a noh theater.

The MOA Museum of Art was opened in 1982 by the Mokichi Okada Association (MOA). Okada Mokichi was an avid art collector who lived from 1882 to 1955 and also founded the Hakone Museum of Art in Gora.
