Bandai Museum in Mibu

We went there today.
"Let there be light!"
Inventors' section - mostly about Thomas Edison and his creations.


There's also an entire room devoted to Gundam. These are GM (RGM-79) from Earth Federation Military.



The sort of stuff that big kids like - Zaku II (MS-06F) from Zeon.


And the sort of stuff that little kids like - Ultraman Taro.



There's also a section with vintage toys from around the world. My favorite was Noah's ark.

To find out more about the museum, and see a short video clip (yes, I shot it) from the Gundam room, please visit this post and this post on our other blog.

Thank you! I've never been a fan of Gundam, but my husband is and he really enjoyed the museum. :)

Look so different than the Bandai Museum that used to be in Matsudo.

We thought of visiting the museum the year after the one in Matsudo closed but we decided a trip to Mibu just to visit the museum was simply not worth it.

But then, any chance to see an Ultra hero would be a good excuse for my son to make the visit!

Thanks for the post. :)

Hi Lina,
actually the museum moved to a new building (again!) last month, and now it seems to be a lot more family and kids-friendly than otaku-oriented.
