About

Keio Museum Commons

"Keio Museum Commons [KeMCo]" is a common space in which students, academics, university staff, and alumni can mingle. Keio University’s ‘Banraisha’ common room was originally designed for this purpose. The aim of KeMCo is to create a ‘commons’ within a museum that is neither public nor private, but open to all kinds of community activities.

KeMCo is a place where people from different communities linked to the university can come together to exchange ideas about cultural assets. At KeMCO, cultural assets of the university meet and interact, and are connected to a global network through advanced digital technologies.
