Nikon Museum is now closed for an extended period from March 1, 2024 (Fri) while relocating to the new Nikon head office (Nishioi, Shinagawa-ku, Tokyo). The museum is scheduled for reopening at the new Nikon head office in Autumn 2024.

Here introduce exhibits of the Nikon Museum



In this display, you can see about 500 items, from the Nikon Model I to digital SLR cameras and interchangeable lenses. You can also view brochures of Nikon products on a specially designed monitor in the "Brochure Library".

Synthetic Silica Glass Ingot

This 130cm long glass ingot is an embodiment of Nikon's optical material manufacturing technologies. We hope that you appreciate its size, beauty and technological value.



This exhibit displays the progress of our industrial equipment and technologies. Here we introduce Nikon products and technologies that contribute to various industries, such as Semiconductor Lithography Systems, FPD Lithography Systems, measurement and inspection instruments, and encoders.
Semiconductor lithography systems are considered “the most precise equipment in history”. We display the “NSR-1505G2A”, an early model of the Nikon semiconductor lithography system, which is registered as Essential Historical Material for Science and Technology at the National Museum of Nature and Science, Tokyo. In this unprecedented exhibition, you can actually operate an exhibited lithography system and stage.


Bioscience and Medical Imaging

This exhibit introduces Nikon's activities in the healthcare and medical fields. Through videos and displays of actual equipment, you can learn about the advances in Nikon microscopes, various products used in the latest developments in the medical field, and Nikon's challenges in even newer areas of medical technology.
iPS cells are a major focus in the field of regenerative medicine. Here we show the BioStation CT Cell Culture Observation System, which is utilized in iPS cell research. The N-SIM Super Resolution Microscope, which achieves double the resolution of conventional optical microscopes, is also displayed.



Nikon continuously contributes to space observation and development. Here we explain such activities using panels and models, from astronomical observation devices to optical probes mounted on satellites.
