The aim of the Minamata Disease Municipal Museum is collecting and preserving valuable materials about Minamata disease, which is considered to be one of the earliest pollution problems in Japan, and handing down the lessons and experiences of Minamata disease to future generations so they do not fade away.
Since its opening in January 1993, about 700,000 people from within Japan and from over 175 foreign countries visit us to learn about pollution, the environment and human rights.
