  • EXHIBITIONS: The Origami Museum in Colonia is open to visitors from around the world. Located in a district proclaimed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, it organizes its exhibitions in a broad and informative manner. In this approach, it features exhibit halls that trace the history of folding in the East and West up to its present applications in science, robotics, space exploration and industrial and textile design, bolstered by original artworks produced by renowned artists, historical documentation and many videos available to the public.

  • THE GERSHON LEGMAN LIBRARY: The Museum’s collection includes around 300 origami books for all experience levels. It also maintains an archive of historical documents partially consisting of the legacy of Gershon Legman, the first origami historian. An appointment is necessary for consultation of library documents. 

  • WORKSHOPS: The Origami Museum in Colonia plans to offer training workshops at different levels as well as origami instructors training workshops. Information about these will be forthcoming. 

  • FILM: Showings of documentary films related to origami. 

  • STORE: Sale of origami (kami and washi), books, kits and souvenirs.
