On Thursday, August 18, The Ann & Gabriel Barbier-Mueller Museum: The Samurai Collection is hosting a special event arranged for the tenants of the HARWOOD District. We invite you to attend a cocktail reception where you are encouraged to explore our current exhibition, Samurai: Inside the Armor, before it closes at the end of the month. This last-chance visit will give you the opportunity to experience the beautiful collection of Japanese armor and learn how the items were created, from the inside out, with use of x-rays taken of the objects. The lavish and intricate armor conceals advanced technology that was capable of prolonging a warrior’s life in the most perilous circumstances.

Join us with your fellow HARWOOD tenants to greet and mingle while experiencing these rare objects—the largest private collection of samurai armor in the world. Museum staff members will be on hand to discuss the collection and answer any questions that arise. We look forward to meeting you!
