NHK Museum of Broadcasting

Tokyo, Kanto

The NHK Museum of Broadcasting was opened in 1956 as the worlds first museum exclusively exhibiting broadcasting items. Since broadcasting started in Japan, technology has greatly progressed from radio to television, and then later to satellite broadcasting, and High-Definition and digital broadcasting. In the Broadcasting Library, visitors can watch approximately 6,000 old NHK programs previously on-air and can obtain access to pertinent literature and information relating to broadcasting and its history. The machinery is preserved as it actually works, and the visitors can use, for example, a Western Electric Type 373 microphone, a product which is over 80 years old.’
