Mazda has renovated its Hiroshima Museum and you can take a virtual tour


Mazda announced today that the brand museum at its headquarters in Hiroshima, Japan, has been renovated. As it opens to the public on May 23, you can visit today even if you live thousands of miles away.

The museum will continue to showcase the brand’s historic vehicles with exhibits dedicated to Mazda’s history going back to the very beginning. However, the spatial design has been revised to create a more beautiful space that is elegant and cozy, says the automaker.

The new design features monotonous color schemes coupled with warm lighting and wood finishes, all aligned with the design concepts it uses in its vehicles. As visitors move through the museum, they are presented with a narrative experience that traces the history of the brand and carries it into the future. It expresses the thought that has gone into every Mazda vehicle over the past hundred years and how the brand will continue into the next century.
