Handing down the Lessons Learned
A Guide for the Future

An unprecedented complex disaster killed and changed the lives of so many people significantly.
We were forced to realize that our ordinary, everyday life with family and friends could suddenly change.
Today, since disasters are becoming more common than ever, we would like to tell you what must always be remembered and learned from.
We hope that the challenges Fukushima faced will serve as a guide for the future.
Founded upon this belief, we welcome you to the Great East Japan Earthquake and Nuclear Disaster Memorial Museum.

  • Know, learn
    (exhibition)


    Around 200 exhibits convey the damage caused by the earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear accident. There are also videos with testimony from survivors, touch panel displays, models, and more, enabling you to deepen your understanding of this unprecedented multi-disaster.

  • Experience, think
    (education)


    Visitors can have an experience of the complex disaster and reconstruction through a fieldwork, a bus tour that visits Futaba town and Namie town, as well as educational lectures by narrators. At the end of the visit, we offer a workshop to help visitors learn more.

  • Voices of Survivors
    (narration)


    You can listen to the voices of disaster survivors. The contents of the stories include the earthquakes, the tsunamis, and the evacuation from the nuclear power plant accident, which depends on the voice telling them, where they lived or what position they were in at that time.
