The Minato City Local History Museum is a newly opened resource for everyone to learn about Minato City. By discovering its history, exploring our past and communicating together we can find out more about what makes it special. This building, including the museum, was originally built as The Institute of Public Health by architect Uchida Yoshikazu in 1938. It was renovated to preserve its original architectural style but with added seismic reinforcements. It also includes disability- friendly access features so that everyone can use it comfortably. We hope that you can enjoy new experiences and gain illuminating knowledge while appreciating the historic architecture and exhibitions.
