Discover a different Japan in the distinctive ship-shaped museum.
This six-story building plus basement, shaped like a full-sized ocean liner, is completely devoted to ships. The Museum has mainly five areas, and provides the public with information about ocean development (exploring the seas), the history and the mechanisms of ships, ship steering, fishing boats and ports, marine transport, marine leisure activities, and Japanese ships. Visitors can simulate steering a ship using a radio-controlled ship and can also enjoy watching a film, “The Ocean, Ships and People”, on a 2-story screen set in the basement of the Marine Theater. Its library collects maritime-related books and its observation room commands panoramic views of Tokyo Bay.
*This Museum will be closed from 1st October for renewal.
