Recently the number of museum for manga culture has been increasing in Japan. When manga is regarded only as visual culture, and is exhibited, the building type of museum can be useful space to show pictures of manga. But manga is also linier media people read individually, like books in a library. In this situation, Kyoto International Manga Museum may be regarded as one of the “successful” manga museum in Japan, because this architecture has both spatial aspects of museum and library. In this paper, it will be discussed what is the museum building adopted to manga, comparing 3 museums or libraries for manga culture - Kyoto International Manga Museum, The Osamu Tezuka Manga Museum, and Hiroshima City Manga Library.
