Japan’s National Museum of Nature and Science to Hold Dr. Stone Collaboration Event
Japan’s National Museum of Nature and Science will hold a collaboration with the anime series Dr. Stone starting June 21! The project will include mini-exhibitions, character audio guides for permanent exhibits, commentary panels with collaborative visuals for permanent exhibitions, and collaborative goods! The event aims to convey a deeper interest in science to the younger generation.
A mini-exhibition will be held to explain the world of the first two seasons of Dr. Stone from a scientific point of view. The science used by the show’s protagonist, Senku Ishigami, and his friends in the Kingdom of Science will be explained in an easy-to-understand manner through specimens and materials from the Museum’s collection of natural history and the history of science and technology.
Location: Earth Building 1F
Exhibition Details at a Glance
Fossilization Exhibit – How are Living Things Petrified?

Music Exhibition – How are Records Recorded and Played Back?
SP Record Player (ELECTROLA No.4) / Manufactured by ELECTROLA GESELLSCHAFT

A German-made SP record player (manual portable phonograph) will be on display to help visitors understand.
Character Voice Guides for Permanent Exhibits
Voice actors Yusuke Kobayashi (Senku Ishigami) and Kengo Kawanishi (Gen Asagiri) will provide their character voices in special commentary on ten of the museum’s permanent exhibits.
