In Autumn 2019, the Snoopy Museum will relocate to Grandberry Park, Minami Machida. The museum, which once stood in Roppongi, will be twice the size and come with a new logo and upgraded image.
Head of Cozfish Shin Sobue created the logo and image design for the Roppongi Snoopy Museum and is now in charge of the design and logo for the new museum. In contrast to the Roppongi logo design, which was minimalistic to represent the museum’s metropolitan surroundings, the new logo reflects the image of a park and fun picnic memories. There is particular emphasis on the letters SMT in this new logo design. There are plans to place the logo on the museum wall nearest to the park. A model of the new museum will make its debut appearance at the Snoopy Museum exhibition to be held in Osaka from 13th April.
The Snoopy Museum will have many similarities with the Schulz Museum in California. The Snoopy Museum will be home to many fascinating and precious original storyboards and materials, and will even have permanent exhibits as well as personal workshop rooms. You can also obtain original goods that you cannot find anywhere else. Visitors are also invited to stop by the cafe in the adjoining annexe. The museum’s location is surrounded by greenery, and it is here that a wide range of activities will take place to entertain visitors. A brand new type of museum is soon to be born.
The exhibition that took place five times in the Roppongi Snoopy Museum has been condensed down to be held in Nagoya and Osaka. Here, you can catch original drawings and sketches and purchase from the selection of 200 carefully chosen vintage goods. The most popular original goods are also making a comeback!
If you’re a Snoopy fan who missed the opportunity to catch the exhibitions held at Roppongi, there’s now a chance to enjoy Snoopy at the new Snoopy Museum!

Nihonbashi Art Aquarium Museum Closes for Renewal and Relocation
The Nihonbashi ART AQUARIUM will be closed on September 26 2021 to make way for new exhibits and works. The museum is scheduled to be relocated in the first half of 2022.
The ART AQUARIUM Museum opened in Nihonbashi, Tokyo on August 28 202 with the concept of “a museum where life dwells.” This will be the largest renewal in the history of the museum Museum, opened by writer and general producer Hidetomo Kimura, with the addition of more exhibits and new and improved interactive areas.
The Nihonbashi Art AQUARIUM Museum opened alongside the 2020 Tokyo Olympics and Paralympic, with the expectations that visitors would come from both within Japan and overseas, thanks to the exhibitions which easily explain and represent Japan’s proud traditional culture and performing arts, but due to Covid restrictions, foreign tourists are still unable to enter the country. Despite this, the Museum saw many customers and with the closing of the Olympic and Paralympic Games, the museum will be closed in preparation to relocate to the new ART AQUARIUM. If you want to see the Nihonbashi location for yourself then this is your last chance!
In addition, the “ART AQUARIUM” digital tour is being held from September 12, allowing you to appreciate the Museum in a digital format until the reopening.
