Read about origamists, and see everything they have to offer...

About Us

The Virtual Origami Museum was first built in December 2017. The museum content allows you to view the biographies of origamists, hear what they have to say, see origami artworks they both designed AND folded plus view their web presence.

What Origami Is

Origami is paper folding or folding with another material to make a creation called a model. Purists do not allow cutting, gluing, coloring or other ways to add or subtract from the design, just changing the design by folding. Impure folding may be called kirikomi origami (with cutting and folding) or another type of art, if more than folding occurs.


The Origami Community is the base that brings together the general public and origamists with the museum, classroom and gift shop. The museum introduces origami as art to the public to educate viewers towards improved educational and recreational understanding. The classroom provides teachers with both a place to teach and a space to enable patrons to be able to fold and keep their own origami. The gift shop offers origami items for sale to origami enthusiasts and other patrons alike. Fold with the community!
