Measures against COVID-19

Nikon Museum’s operations give full consideration to preventing further spreading of COVID-19. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and appreciate your understanding.

Entry registration

Before entering the museum, visitors are required to register their telephone number or email address at the entrance of the museum.
We may provide information to official organizations such as healthcare centers when required to do so. The personal information you enter is managed based on the Nikon Group Privacy Protection Statement, and will not be used for any purpose other than the prevention of further infection. The data will be stored for a month after visiting the museum and discarded immediately after the storage period.

The museum limits the number of visitors to a maximum of 5 for each group, and the attendance time to one hour.

If the number of visitors reaches 20 at any one time, staff may ask visitors to wait before entering the museum, in order to avoid overcrowding.
