Overview
More
Based on Meiji University's founding philosophy of "Rights, Liberty, Independence and Self-Government", the Meiji University Museum aims to publicly exhibit the achievements of its academic pursuits and to also serve as an institution of learning. The Museum is divided into three departments, each having a distinct origin. The Commodity Department, the successor to the "Commodities Museum" considers lifestyles through commodities; and the Criminal Materials Department, follows in the footsteps of its predecessor the "Museum of Criminology" and contemplates law and human rights. The Archaeology Department, formerly the "Archaeological Museum", is concerned with humankind's past and diversity. In this 21st century, we are embroiled in a myriad of problems. We hope some hint to overcoming them can be found in this museum.

The crime and punishment section of the museum was interesting and intriguing, with very cool displays. There was also an archaeology section as well as a section on Japanese commodities and materials, all of which was quite interesting. It's a small gallery though, so can...More

We went to this museum because it houses a section specifically dedicated to torture in Japan .... which was good but which wasn't really fair because it also housed some very interesting other exhibits. Located in the two basement floors below the Meiji University there...More
