KUALA LUMPUR, July 11 (Bernama) -- teamLab Planets TOKYO DMM in Toyosu (teamLab Planets), has been recognised by Guinness World Records as the world’s most visited museum (single art group), welcoming over 2.5 million visitors from April 1, 2023, to March 31 this year.

According to a statement, this recognition marks the second Guinness World Records title for a teamLab museum, following the 2019 record set by teamLab Borderless: MORI Building DIGITAL ART MUSEUM in Odaiba, Tokyo, which attracted more than 2.1 million visitors.

Additionally, teamLab Planets recorded a total of around 2.4 million visitors from January to December last year, significantly surpassing other single-artist museums, such as the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam (over 1.6 million visitors) and the Picasso Museum in Barcelona (over 1.0 million visitors), when compared to "The Art Newspaper Visitor Figures 2023" survey, which compares visitor numbers at museums worldwide.

In early 2025, teamLab Planets will expand significantly with the addition of major new art spaces, whereby the expansion will include over 10 art installations, greatly enhancing the teamLab Planets experience.

The massive new area will feature the creative athletic space Athletics Forest, the co-creative educational project Future Park, as well as the Catching and Collecting Forest.

Athletics Forest is a creative athletic space based on the concept of understanding the world through the body and thinking about the world three-dimensionally, whereas Future Park is an educational project based on the concept of collaborative creation, featuring an amusement park where people can enjoy creating the world freely with others.

Meanwhile, Catching and Collecting Forest is a new learning space based on the concept of Catch, Study, Release, in which visitors will be able to explore the world using their smartphones to capture various creatures, study them, and create their very own collection book.

In Google's "Year in Search 2023" for the "Most Popular Museums in the World", teamLab Planets came in fifth, after the Louvre Museum (Paris), the British Museum (London), Musée d'Orsay (Paris), and the Natural History Museum (London).

Furthermore, teamLab Planets has garnered international acclaim, including being the first in Japan to win "Asia's Leading Tourist Attraction 2023" at the World Travel Awards, often referred to as the Oscars of the travel industry.
