Come inside the Mazda Museum in Hiroshima Online
A new service has been introduced at the Mazda Museum in Hiroshima Japan, people can now take a virtual tour of the main exhibition areas via Google Maps Street View. This is a new and unconventional way for visitors to see the Mazda spirit as well as learning more about the technological breakthroughs and its 93 year heritage.
To access the virtual Mazda Museum, go to Mazda’s global website at www.mazda.com/mazdaspirit/museum/. Once on the site visitors can tour five areas of the museum, the Entrance Hall, the History and the Future areas as well as the Technology and Rotary Engine exhibits – by clicking on the appropriate Google Street View Link.
Features of the Technology exhibit, include displays of Mazda’s new fuel-saving technological approach ‘SKYACTIV’ which is currently available in the new generation Mazda 6 and Mazda CX-5.
The History exhibit lets visitors explore some of Mazda’s most remarkable cars such as the Mazda Cosmo Sport (110S) from the 1960s, the RX-7 from the 1970’s and 80s and the first MX-5 roadster.
“A visit to the Mazda Museum is a must for anyone who loves cars,” comments Jeremy Thomson, Managing Director, Mazda UK. “For people interested in Mazda, the new Street View experience makes a visit to our headquarters possible without having to travel to Japan. Once inside the Museum, they can get to know the Mazda spirit in a very intimate and real way.”
The Mazda Museum first opened in May 1994, near Mazda’s global headquarters in Hiroshima. After a renovation project in 2005, the exhibit space was increased and now offers six different exhibition areas and a gift shop with Mazda memorabilia.
