Measures against COVID-19

Nikon Museum's operations give full consideration to preventing the further spread of COVID-19. In the event that a member of Nikon Museum's staff has tested positive for COVID-19, we will place an announcement on the museum's website concerning what days that staff member was on duty at the museum. Please make a note of the day you visit the museum so that you can confirm whether you visited the museum on any of those days. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and appreciate your understanding.

Addition of Monday closures and shortened opening hours

The museum is closed on Mondays, in addition to Sundays and Japanese national holidays. Furthermore, opening hours have been shortened by one hour, from 10:00 to 17:00. (last admission at 16:30)

Limitations on number of visitors and attendance time

The museum limits the number of visitors to a maximum of 5 for each group, and the attendance time to one hour. For groups of more than 5 people, please contact the Nikon Museum using the contact form below. 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.

Physical condition check

When entering the museum, staff will check your body temperature. The staff may refuse you (and anyone attending with you) entry if your body temperature is higher than 37.5℃, or when you show cold-like symptoms such as a cough.
