The Mori Art Museum (森美術館 Mori Bijutsukan?) is a contemporary art museum founded by the real estate developer Minoru Mori in the Roppongi Hills Mori Tower in the Roppongi Hills complex both of which he built in Tokyo, Japan.

The interior architect of the museum's galleries on the 53rd floor of the 54 story tower in which the museum is housed is Richard Gluckman of Gluckman Mayner Architects. The museum does not exhibit a permanent collection but rather temporary exhibitions of works by contemporary artists.

Artists whose work has been exhibited at the museum include Ai Weiwei, Tokujin Yoshioka and Bill Viola.[1]

The museum's founder Minoru Mori died in March 2012. The museum focuses on contemporary art and primarily exhibits works of Asian artists. It also features the MAM project which exhibits solo shows on a smaller scale in the museum space. In 2015 the museum exhibited Dinh Q. Le`s solo exhibition.
