The University of Tokyo Graduate School of Science and School of Science Gallery, renovated by The University of Tokyo Ushioda Memorial Foundation, will reopen on Monday, July 11, 2022, as a place for information dissemination and interaction with the wider public.

In addition to the existing exhibits on the Nobel Prize in Physics awarded to Professor Masatoshi Koshiba, Distinguished Professor of the University of Tokyo, and Professor Takaaki Kajita, Distinguished University Professor/Special University Professor Emeritus of the University of Tokyo, the Science Gallery has added an exhibit on Dr. Yoshiro Manabe, the first Nobel Prize winner in 2021 in the field of geophysics. In addition to a replica of the medals of the three Nobel laureates, an introduction to the research for which they were awarded is also on display.

In addition to the Nobel Prize exhibit, we have also expanded the space to introduce the history and outline of the Faculty of Science and the forefront of scientific research with video clips.

Anyone is welcome to visit the museum free of charge, and we invite you to experience the fascination of science.
