In this space, remaining the atmosphere of the building when it was originally built, visitors are greeted by a medical X-ray system. Its original layout and materials show the origins of Shimadzu’s corporate culture.
This room shows various materials for the achievements of both Genzo Shimadzu Senior and Junior with the modernization history of Kyoto against the backdrop of Shimadzu's founding. Also the living space of Genzo Shimadzu Senior is shown. It remains just as it was when he used.
This room exhibits physics and chemistry instruments that were mainly used for teaching science in the period between 1875 (the year of Shimadzu’s foundation) and 1925 (the early Taisho period). In addition to their robustness, also note their fine ornamental details.
In 1917, Shimadzu was incorporated. This room exhibits products in the three business fields of physics and chemistry instruments, medical X-ray systems, and specimens. These products supported the company through the turbulence of the First World War, the devastating earthquakes in 1923, and the economic crises from 1929 to 1932.
Since the 1920s, Shimadzu has embarked on a full-scale business in the fields of research and industry. In this room, the main products are lined up from the 1920s to the 2020s. Also, the room has a description of the technology that earned a Nobel Prize, various physics and chemistry instruments, and an area for visitors to perform experiments.
