Perry Commemorative Museum

The Perry Commemorative Museum exhibits written sources of historical information, scale models, and other items related to the arrival of U.S. Navy commander Matthew Calbraith Perry in Japan in the 19th century.
Picture scrolls and newspapers from the time convey the astonishment and reactions of the people of Japan toward the arrival of Perry and his foreign vessel.
The Commemorative Museum’s mission is to inform people of the facts and historical significance of the arrival of Perry for generations to come.
