Just three years after its opening in summer 2018, Odaiba’s digital art museum teamLab Borderless announced it’s set to close around this time next year. But don’t worry; unlike dozens of Tokyo attractions that have been forced to shut down permanently in the midst of the pandemic, the ever-popular museum is gearing up to open a new site in the city centre sometime in 2023.
The closing of teamLab Borderless will follow a series of shutdowns in the Palette Town complex, which include Zepp Tokyo and Venus Fort, to make way for a massive redevelopment of the waterfront area. teamLab Borderless has just celebrated breaking a Guinness World Record for being the world's most visited museum dedicated to a single group or artist or collective. So while details have yet to be revealed for this next facility, you can bet that it’ll strive to outdo the first one.
The last day of opening will be on August 31 2022. So you still have a year to visit this stellar Tokyo attraction and experience the spellbinding immersive artworks. And in case you missed it, teamLab Borderless has recently unveiled 25 new and updated exhibits.
