The Tottori Folk Crafts Museum (鳥取民芸美術館 Tottori Mingei Bijutsukan) opened in Tottori, Japan, in 1949. It was established as the Tottori Mingeikan by Yoshida Shōya (吉田璋也), local advocate of the mingei folk craft movement, who formed a craft guild in 1931 and opened the craft shop "Takumi" in the city the following year. The building in which the museum is housed was registered as a Tangible Cultural Property in 2012.
