Nagasaki Museum of History and Culture

Nagasaki, Kyushu

The Nagasaki Museum of History and Culture is not only a contemporary museum, but also contains a reconstruction of part of the Nagasaki Magistrates Office called Bugyosho, a local agency of the central government of the 18th century from the Edo Period (1603-1867). It plays an important role in ‘the study of Nagasaki,’ a town which enjoyed prosperity as a window open to trade and cultural exchanges with foreign countries during the period of national isolation. The museum holds 48,000 items in its collection, including historical documents and arts and crafts under the categories of “History & Culture” and “Nagasaki Bugyosho.” There are also workshops on Nagasaki traditional crafts.’
