The Mazda Museum is set to reopen on 23 May 2022, after having undergone a full renovation.
Located in Hiroshima, Japan, the Mazda Museum is packed with modern and historical vehicles, along with numerous exhibits central to the company’s history. Founded more than a century ago, the carmaker actually started out producing cork before it went into automobiles.
The Museum now features a monotone colour scheme along with warm lighting and wood surfaces. These choices are said to be in line with the brand’s design, and are meant to offer a cosy space to visitors.
There will be 10 different exhibit zones, each one with décor and lighting that matches its individual theme. A vehicle assembly line tour is part of the line-up.
All zones are designed to give visitors a narrative experience of Mazda’s vision for the next century, as well as highlight the thought that has gone into its vehicles around the world over the past 100 years.
If Japan hasn’t opened to tourists by next month, or if your passport renewal is still pending, you can still visit the Museum online. It’s currently only in Japanese, but Mazda says that the English version will be available at a later stage.
That said, when it comes to holidays, it’s never too early to start planning. Find out more about the Mazda Museum through its website here.
