Just three years after its opening in the summer of 2018, the Odaiba digital art museum teamLab without borders announced its closure around this time next year. But do not worry ; unlike dozens of Tokyo attractions that have been forced to close permanently amid the pandemic, the ever-popular museum is preparing to open a new site in the city center sometime in 2023.
The closure of teamLab Borderless will follow a series of closures at the Palette Town complex, which include Zepp Tokyo and Fort of Venus, to make way for a massive redevelopment of the waterfront. teamLab Borderless has just celebrated the Guinness World Record as the most visited museum in the world dedicated to a single group, artist or collective. So while the details of this upcoming install haven’t been revealed yet, you can bet it will strive to outdo the first.
The last opening day will be August 31, 2022. So you still have one year to visit this stellar Tokyo attraction and discover the mesmerizing immersive works of art. And in case you missed it, teamLab Borderless recently unveiled 25 new and updated exhibits.
