The Mint Museum is the only western-style brick building remaining from the Meiji era on the premises of the Japan Mint. Originally constructed as a thermal power plant, in 1969 the building was refurbished into the Mint Museum, with the facade left in its original state in order to preserve this historical building and establish a facility for introducing the Japan Mint's activities to the public.
We carried out major renovation in 2008 to realize a more "people-friendly, environment-friendly and fascinating museum" with new exhibition ideas. In April 2009, the Mint Museum reopened.
The Mint Museum has 4,000 of historical exhibits. You can read valuable documents, learn history of coins, and understand the close relationship between society and coins.
The Mint Museum is open in principal all year round but closed on The Year-End and New Year holidays and during the cherry blossom viewing week, etc.
